Islamabad, April 24, 2019: Prime Minister Office on Wednesday said that the statement of Prime Minister Imran Khan during his visit to Iran on the use of Pakistani soil had been largely taken out of context and linking it to any other context was an effort to misinterpret the expression which did not serve the country in any way.
