we need to learn from our brotherly neighboring country China, says Himayat Ullah Khan

PESHAWAR: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provincial Caretaker Finance Advisor, Himayat Ullah Khan, emphasized the significance of Pakistan’s Independence Day as a reminder of the sacrifices made by the nation’s founding fathers to establish Pakistan. Addressing a gathering in connection with Pakistan’s Independence Day celebrations at the China Window, a Chinese cultural center in Peshawar, Khan highlighted the importance of loyalty and sacrifices for the country in the current circumstances.
