‘Panamanian minister’s calim for meeting Dar in Washington baseless’


ISLAMABAD, April 16 (APP): A spokesman of the Ministry of Finance on Saturday termed the claim of Panamanian Deputy Minister for Economy about a meeting with Finance Minister Ishaq Dar in Washington baseless.

Referring to electronic media reports in this regard, the spokesman in a statement, said Panama’s Deputy Minister of Economy Ivan Zarak made an absolutely baseless, unfounded and extremely surprising claim during a CNN interview of meeting with Pakistan’s Finance Minister in Washington.

The Finance Minister, he said, had cancelled his visit to Washington DC where he was scheduled to participate in the spring meetings of World Bank and International Monetary Fund from April 14-17.
