ISLAMABAD:Referring the Punjab government’s recent move to appoint high level bureaucrats to the South Punjab Secretariat, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said it was a major milestone in the creation of the new province.

He said this achievement is the testament to our commitment to fulfil our promise to the people of Pakistan. “I congratulate the people of Southern Punjab and I thank my Prime Minister Imran Khan for his vision and support,” Shah Mahmood Qureshi wrote on Twitter. The tweet came a day after the Punjab government made the South Punjab civil secretariat functional by appointing 10 administrative secretaries.
