The US State Department official Zed Tarar has said President Joe Biden wants an immediate solution to Kashmir issue.
While on domestic affairs, Poor and deserving families from across the country have thanked Prime Minister Imran Khan for provision of soft loans through micro financing company Akhuwat to construct their own houses.
According the Prime Minister Office, the government had allocated five billion rupees to Akhuwat to provide loans to the deserving people to have their own roof as per vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
It said so far the Akhuwat has spent 3.35 billion rupees for construction of 7572 units while 2416 applications are under process.

Prime Minister’s Special Assistant on National Security Moeed Yusuf has urged the world to compel India to implement the UN Security Council resolutions on holding a plebiscite in Jammu and Kashmir.
In an interview with Turkish news agency Anadolu, he said India’s unilateral actions in the Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir have paved the way for international community to intervene and resolve the longstanding dispute.
Talking about Pakistan’s relations with India, he said we are dealing with a neighbor who is motivated by expansionist ideology and can go to any extent to undercut Pakistan.
He said we have put out a whole dossier recently to inform the world of what India is doing is unprecedented.
Moeed Yusuf said under BJP regime, India’s relations with all neighboring countries, including China, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, are getting worst.
He said we have also pointed out that India is being a spoiler in Afghanistan, undermining Pakistani sovereignty and stability.
The Special Assistant said New Delhi is involved in maligning Pakistan in every capital, doing identity theft, taking fake NGOs to the UN and breaking every law possible.
