Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday said he has ordered an inquiry against the Pakistani ambassador in Saudi Arabia for not providing up-to-the-mark services to Pakistani expats and mistreatment meted out to the hard-working Pakistani labourers.

Imran Khan also warned the Pakistani embassies abroad that their most important duty is to serve the Pakistani labourers working in respective countries.

Addressing overseas Pakistanis in connection with Roshan Digital Account reaching a milestone of one billion dollars, the Prime Minister said, “I came to know that the Pakistan Embassy in Saudi Arabia did not provide the services they ought to provide and mistreated our labourers in Saudi Arabia.

We have initiated an inquiry against the Pakistani ambassador in Saudi Arabia. We will make an example of this mistreatment.”

“Overseas Pakistanis are the country’s assets who support the Pakistani economy. Our embassies are not appreciating the hardworking class of overseas Pakistanis which are labourers.

They work round the clock and send remittances,” the prime
minister said.

Imran appreciated overseas Pakistanis efforts and directed the central bank of the country to tap more potential from nine million expatriate Pakistani nationals.
