LONDON: Federal Information Minister Pervez Rasheed has said that sit-ins and inflammatory speeches do not pose a threat to democracy in Pakistan, ARY News reported.

Speaking to media after arriving in London, Rasheed said that the country’s political system has strengthened.

He said, “The reason why Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is not agreeing on the terms of references of Panama Leaks investigations is because they themselves have the most number of offshore companies.”

“Investigation will be held against PTI Chairman Imran Khan will be held if inquiry regarding the offshore companies take place,” he added.

The minister went on to say that Pakistan’s Foreign Office is playing its role in protecting the national interests.
