Putting the responsibility of current economic crisis in the country on the previous government, the prime minister said it breached its own agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) due to which the confidence of the Fund on Pakistan shattered and it was hesitant to resume its agreement now.

He said the current government had met all the conditions of the IMF and hoped that the program would resume anytime very soon.
