MUNICH (92 News) - Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that Pakistan is facing the worst economic crisis in its history.

In a recent interview with American channel CNBC on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference, he said that the Ukrainian war and flood destroyed the country's economy. "Pakistan can solve its problems once again by becoming an emerging economy. It is going through a period where unconstitutional measures will no longer take place," he maintained.

The PPP chairman said that they had discussed the climate change in Pakistan, country's economy and the situation in Afghanistan.

About Defense Minister Khawaja Asif's statement, Bilawal Bhutto said that the defense minister was speaking in a political context. "Khawaja Asif was not talking about technical but difficult economic times."

He said that they were facing the worst economic crisis. "A large part of the country is submerged in the recent flood water. The flood disaster is due to the climate change. The flood has changed the direction of Pakistan's economy. Pakistan is still facing difficulties and could not get out. We are negotiating with the IMF only to get out of this economic crisis," he added.

He was of the view that the steps taken by the opposition had happened for the first time in history. "Former Prime Minister Imran Khan can return to the Parliament by adopting a democratic style. However, he is not adopting a democratic style which is not beneficial for him," he maintained.
