Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader and former foreign minister, Khawaja Asif, said that the nation had to face embarrassment owing to the incumbent government’s foreign policy performance.

While addressing the National Assembly, Asif criticized the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's (PTI) government and its foreign policies.

He mocked government, saying, "When Prime Minister Imran Khan visited Saudi Arabia, PTI leaders said he brought back '10 arab' but it is yet to be ascertained whether they meant 10 Arabs or Rs10 billion."

He further said, “Pakistan suffered a setback following India’s refusal to hold a meeting between foreign ministers of the two countries.”

“Doubts were also created over China-Pakistan Economic Corridor,” he asserted.

Moreover, former foreign minister criticized the government, he said, “An announcement regarding granting citizenship to Afghan refugees was later turned into a proposal.”

Responding to Asif, Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari said, “Asif has only now remembered foreign policy when he is in the opposition.”

“The previous government’s foreign policy was not clear and it was never brought up in the Parliament,” she added.

Mazari continued, “If opposition wants to play politics then we are also ready and if opposition focuses on resolving issues then we will also support them.”

“For the first time we contacted the United Kingdom over the money laundering issue and several accused have been arrested,” she asserted.
