Dr Moeed said, “It is still not free from the US influence and I doubt that there is any country which is free from it.”

He further said Pakistan does not have adequate financial independence the country does not have capital to meet the growing requirements of the population.

“When we cannot meet our demands, we have to rely on foreign loans. When you get loans, your economic sovereignty is compromised,” Dr Moeed candidly admitted.

He also said that seeking loans from the IMF means a compromise on sovereignty of Pakistan.
