Updated : August 20, 2018 07:09 AM IST

A day after he was sworn in, Khan promised reforms across all fields. "I want to see Pakistan a great country" with social services for the poor, Khan said.
Khan pointed to the growing divide between the rich and poor and said he would adopt austerity measures to relieve the strain on the economy and tackle the country's foreign debt, over $95 billion.
Khan spoke only briefly on foreign policy. "We will keep good relations with all countries; we want peace as without it no progress and development is possible," he said.
