On Tuesday, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif claimed that “audio leaks” had damaged the country’s reputation abroad because people were reluctant to communicate with him out of concern for their privacy. At a press conference held at the Prime Minister’s House in the nation’s capital, he said this.

The younger Sharif said that the “audio leaks” incident was important and that he was putting up a powerful committee to look into it.

Who is now going to pay the Pakistani Prime Minister a visit from abroad? the PM asked. He continued that this affair has imperilled the reputation of a 220 million-person country.

In response to a query, the PM denied claims that Maryam Nawaz had ever asked him for help in importing machinery for her son-in-law.

The Prime Minister claimed that at the 77th General Assembly of the United Governments, he battled for Pakistan with all of his power and brought the anguish of millions of flood victims to the world’s nations.

Speaking to the media, the PM remarked, “I don’t think we have done anything to deserve the calamity of flooding that has uprooted millions and so far claimed the lives of almost 16,00.”

The PM claimed that his conversations with world leaders—particularly those of China and Russia—were productive and that they both committed to providing relief for Pakistan’s flood victims.

He claimed that, in contrast to the previous administration, the PML-N-led dictatorship was making extra efforts to reestablish ties with friendly nations.

He further said that the efforts of Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Sherry Rehman, and Maryam Aurangzeb have helped out the diplomatic quagmire, the Prime Minister remarked, adding that “the PTI government isolated Pakistan by estranging a number of close partners.”

He claimed that the previous administration’s incompetence brought the economy dangerously close to imploding.

He claimed that the Imran Khan-led administration “disgraced Pakistan in the world” with its “diplomacy of begging.”

The prior leaders, according to the prime minister, used to conduct themselves in a beggarly manner when dealing with world leaders, endangering Pakistan’s reputation and honour.

“The opinions of the leaders of friendly countries regarding the conduct of the PTI leaders are not ones I can endorse. Those comments are a state secret.”
