ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has emphasised the need for greater coordination between the Federal Investi­gation Agency (FIA) and the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to fight white collar crime and corrupt practices.

According to the prime minister’s media cell, Mr Khan chaired a briefing of the interior ministry and its attached departments on Monday where he reiterated his commitment to bring back billions of dollars laundered national wealth.

The statement quoted Mr Khan as saying: “Curbing corruption and retrieving wealth of the country, amassed through illegal means and laundered abroad, were among the biggest challenge for the government.”

Prime Minister Khan said that overseas Pakistanis — the most valuable asset of the country — were ready to bring their money to Pakistan and invest in various sectors of the economy. “However, we need to provide them an enabling environment that ensures safety and security of their lives and property,” he stated.

He said that the interior ministry and its attached departments should play their role more effectively towards ensuring service delivery, improving overall security situation in the country and providing a sense of security to the citizens.

Adviser to the prime minister on institutional reforms Dr Ishrat Husain, special assistants to PM Naeemul Haq and Iftikhar Durrani, MNA Sheharyar Afridi, Interior Secretary Yousaf Naseem Khokhar and Secretary to the PM Azam Khan as well as other senior officers heading various departments of the interior ministry attended the meeting.

The interior secretary made a detailed presentation about the functions of the ministry, which is working directly under the control of the prime minister.
