"No one thought that we would achieve the growth rate of nearly 4 per cent. In fact, according to several independent experts, we may even surpass this growth rate or even beyond," he maintained.
PM Imran further said that the incumbent government faced unprecedented issues and challenges.
Responding to a citizen, PM stated, "If Pakistan revives its relations with India [without the former giving Occupied Kashmir its rightful status back] it would be similar to turning our back on the Kashmiris."
"We stand with Kashmiris and we are aware about their sacrifices. We can't improve trade ties with India at the price of the Kashmiris' blood."
However, if they [India] can go back to the August 5 state [regarding Kashmir] then we can talk to them.
"On the model of Kashmir, Palestine's demography has been changed through illegal settlements."
"The resolution to the issue is a two-state solution and the ongoing movement and global awareness would result into it."
