PRESS STATEMENT BY FOREIGN MINISTER

(2018-08-08) On my return to Islamabad, a statement in Dawn newspaper dated 04-08-2018 was brought to my attention which required elucidation.

For information, ExxonMobil has purchased a block of Pakistani deep sea drilling rights off the Indus delta for exploration. Their drilling is yet to start as depths are very intense but they are very hopeful of success in discovering a big cache of oil.

While the situation is not only good news and hopefully rewarding to Pakistan, anything further should not be added and may not be construed by my talk at the FPCCI etc.
