- PM also highlighted the Belt and Road initiative prospects at the summit meeting.
- Pakistan is an attractive investment destination, says Imran Khan.
Indian media, yet again ready to scrap the world’s attention from the real agenda of the 19th SCO summit and rebuked PM Imran Khan for sitting during the opening ceremony of Shanghai summit. Some of the diehard reporters of Indian media didn’t break the custom of lambasting at Pakistan and started a harsh criticism on Pakistani premier.
A reporter at News Nation vehemently scolded Imran Khan’s attitude at the 19th SCO summit and said that Khan has broken the diplomatic norms. He probably knows nothing about the diplomatic norms, she alleged.
“Imran Khan loves his position as the premier. All other leaders are standing while Imran Khan broke the diplomatic gesture. He is seeking help from other big countries of the world to get poverty-stricken Pakistan out of the crisis and for this purpose, Khan is meeting with the leaders of other states. Imran Khan has left the manners (diplomatic norms) back in Pakistan,” the reporter further said.
