Iranian oil import costing country billions, says Malik


KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Senator Rehman Malik has said that the country is facing economic losses worth billions of rupees due to the import of Iranian oil.

He said there are different crises present in country including oil, gas and terrorism, adding that these crises should be overcome through proper management.

Rehman Malik, speaking to media on Tuesday, stated that four to five companies are involved in the fuel shortage in the country. He added that that Pakistan is facing losses worth billions as Iranian oil is being imported in the country by getting fake documents made from other countries.

“I had already informed the government in the steering committee meeting that some companies will create oil crisis in the country”, he said.

“A commission should be made to investigate the crisis whereas strict action should be taken against the responsible companies”, Malik said.

The PPP senator, commenting on the marriage of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, said that it was the PTI Chairman’s personal matter and he will have no objection if Khan ties the knot again.
