British PM May, Imran Khan agree on stricter action against money laundering

PTI Chairman Imran Khan arriving at Parliament

Stating that he knew Imran Khan for the last three and a half decades and had been meeting him in different nations on the cricketing field, Sidhu said "I firmly believe that Khan will positively respond to step taken to improve the ties between both the countries which will provide the feeling of brotherhood, peace, prosperity between the two nations as well as in Asia".

Imran's party Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) had invited the likes of Kapil Dev and Sunil Gavaskar along with Sidhu.

Both the leaders agreed that money laundering is a huge issue for the developing economies, adding that Pakistan would desire to receive assistance from the United Kingdom to minimise money laundering.

Replying to a query on the gift he has brought for the former Pakistan Test captain, Mr Sidhu said: "I have brought a Kashmiri shawl for Khan sahib".

Khan won a simple majority in Pakistan's National Assembly with 176 votes, beating his rival Shahbaz Sharif who got 96 votes.

Imran Khan also promised that any kind of NRO will not happen for any of these dacoits.

The Pakistan People's Party (PPP), the third largest party in the house that joined the PML-N and others in an opposition alliance, withdrew its support for Shehbaz Sharif's candidature as Premier, days before the election and abstained from voting, Dawn online reported. The army and Khan have denied the claims.




Murtaza Abbasi, a PML-N lawmaker, said in parliament Khan was "brought here by aliens", a euphemism for the military.

How Khan addresses historic civil-military tensions that have dogged successive governments could define his term.

"My father was never in politics, I had no political experience, I struggled for 22 years and I am proud that we can lead this country to become like what our hero Quaid e Azam envisioned".

Sharif, who was jailed over corruption accusations several weeks before the election, saw his second stint in power ended by a military coup in 1999.

Geo News cited sources as saying that Khan has also made a decision to change the heads of the Federal Board of Revenue, Railways, Pakistan International Airlines and a few other institutions.

A sharp increase in oil prices - Pakistan imports about 80 percent of oil needs - has contributed to a current account deficit that widened by 43 percent to $18 billion in the fiscal year that ended June 30.
