  • Pakistan will not fight any other country's war: PM Imran Khan

"Kashmir is the core issue between the two countries and it should be resolved through talks", he said.

"The largest problem is the water issue in the country", Khan said in a televised address to the nation, adding that it was crucial for Pakistan to build dams as failure to do so could be detrimental to its future generations.

It merits a mention here that expatriates from the United States (US) have contributed the highest amount of Rs5.72 million for the Diamer-Bhasha and Mohmand Dams Fund.

Trump tells Apple to make products in US to avoid China tariffs
But 2018 imports from China through July were up almost 9% over the same period of 2017, according to US Census Bureau data. Apple has warned that proposed United States tariffs on China could force it to raise the price of many of its products.

In his message today, Khan appreciated the courage and professionalism of the Pakistani armed forces in eliminating militancy and terrorism, saying "no doubt their efforts for national development, strengthening of democracy and world peace were laudable".

The chief justice, who announced the fund in July this year, had himself donated Rs1 million to the account created exclusively for the objective of raising money for the construction of the dams. India also contests Pakistan's claim that the part of Kashmir administered by India is witnessing a "freedom movement".

The Shiv Sena editorial asked if "the man with the 56-inch chest [referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi] would retaliate to the remark made by the Pakistani Army chief".

North Korean 'spy' charged over NHS cyber attack
No North Korean government officials were referenced in the complaint by name, though it does allege the government sponsored the attacks.

Khan urged overseas Pakistanis to contribute to the dams fund. "We would like to ask the PM about it", he said, adding that the prime minister and the defence minister should be asked questions about Pakistan Army chief's remarks. "We have to do deal with Pakistan with bullets now, enough with words", said the Rajya Sabha MP. "We are all one and together we have to take this country to the new heights", he said. "I assure you that I will protect your money".

In his address, Imran Khan termed the often talked-about civil-military divide as a myth. In his first address, the prime minister had outlined austerity measures and the need to tackle corruption to bring Pakistan on track.

Last month, overseas Pakistanis were granted the right to vote in the upcoming by-elections.
