Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for National Security Dr Moeed Yousaf has denied media reports that he was being considered for the post of Pakistan’s new High Commissioner to India.
Tweeting a link to the story, the Special Assistant to the Prime Minister said the rumour was completely fabricated and baseless.
“I know it’s too much to ask for a news story to be fact-checked before publication these days. But at least the story shouldn’t defy all logic. It is totally made up and baseless,” he said.
