ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Minister for Economic Affairs Ayaz Sadiq has said that Pakistan does not face the default risk.

Talking to the media on Thursday, he said that the Asian Development Bank (ADB) would have not signed the US$2 billion agreements had there been the risk of default. "The people spreading rumours will face disappointment," he added.

Federal Minister for Planning Ahsan Iqbal said that there is need for protecting the country from chaos. "Afghanistan will also leave Pakistan behind if the country is not put in the right direction after learning a lesson from the past," he added.

PML-N leader Malik Ahmed Ali said that the PTI people are also angry with the policies of party chairman Imran Khan. "A new propaganda is started when their story is exposed," he added.
