Minister of State for External Affairs VK Singh on Monday claimed that Pakistan's newly-elected Prime Minister is very much a puppet of Pakistan Army and that the army is still ruling the country just like it used to do before. The displaced families have fled decades of conflict, ethnic and religious persecution, poverty and economic hardships in turmoil-hit Afghanistan.

"Then why can't we do it here".

Meanwhile, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi also said that India and Pakistan have to move forward keeping realities before them.

Pakistan has the largest refugee population in the world.

SpaceX to announce private moon flight passenger
It's not clear whether the BFR tourism mission has any link to an announcement SpaceX made in February 2017. The last time astronauts orbited-not landed-on the moon was during the Apollo 13 mission in 1970.

Khan noted in his nationally televised remarks that without Pakistani national identification cards and passports, the refugees have been unable to find decent legal jobs or get a quality education in local institutions. "I hope the change will be better than before", the home minister said. "If anything comes about we will let you know", he said.

He also clarified that he had no qualms about the admission of former Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) convener Farooq Sattar to the PTI, adding that the decision rested with the party leadership.

When asked about the continuing infiltration and cross-border terrorism, General VK Singh called Imran Khan a puppet of the Pakistani Army and said, "Did you all expect a change?" Modi has reportedly also stressed on the need to work for terror-free South Asia In his an-hour-long maiden address to the nation a day after his swearing in as the country's 22nd prime minister, Khan said that the country will enter into talks with all neighbours to normalise ties, as without it peace can't be brought in the country. The allegations are at the center of bilateral political tensions. Similarly, matters related to welfare of the Pakistani community in Saudi Arabia and ways to enhance people to people contact are likely to come up for the discussions.
