ISLAMABAD: Federal Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal on Friday retracted his earlier statement by saying that he was not referring to the army chief's statement on the economic situation of the country.

Speaking to SAMAA TV, Ahsan Iqbal said that every institution should issue statements within its domain. Iqbal was speaking in response to DG ISPR's comment that the economic indicators of the country were not looking positive.

"Such irresponsible statements should not be made whose cost the country has to pay," he said. "I think DG ISPR has no capacity to make such commentary on economy," he added.

However, speaking to SAMAA TV, Ahsan Iqbal later said that he had not commented on the statement of the army chief. Whereas General Qamar Javed Bajwa had expressed concern over the country's economic situation a couple of days ago in Karachi and DG ISPR had merely repeated the army chief's comments.
