At the meeting, which was also attended by the chief ministers of three of the four provinces besides federal and provincial ministers and secretaries, Federal Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry and the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief secretary gave separate briefings on the local government system.

Asked on the usage of a helicopter for travel to and from his Bani Gala residence, Khan further said that he did not want the people to be inconvenienced.

Prime Minister Khan said the National Accountability Bureau had been directed to continue an indiscriminate accountability process in the country.

The Prime Minister said that construction of low-priced and affordable "05 Million Houses" is the foremost priority of the government which would not only address housing issues of the people especially in the major cities but would also promote economic growth and create job opportunities. He said he would only make a foreign visit if it benefitted Pakistan. He added that many countries, such as the United States are keen to invest in the country. If you step forward one step, we will take two steps forward.

Much to the chagrin of hawks in Washington and Riyadh, neighbors Iran and Pakistan have reaffirmed their commitment to bolster bilateral ties and open a new chapter in their relationship.

The prime minister also briefed the journalists on his eight-hour meeting with the senior military leadership at General Headquarters in Rawalpindi earlier this week. "We are not facing any undue pressure from any institution".

While he was meeting the journalists, the prime minister reportedly refused to take a pre-scheduled telephone call from French President Emmanuel Macron, claiming he was busy.
