Islamabad: The Pakistan government has decided to continue the travel ban on former president Asif Ali Zardari, his son Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and Sindh CM Murad Ali Shah among other Pakistan Peoples Party leaders. The decision, which prevents them from flying abroad, was taken during a Cabinet meeting chaired by PM Imran Khan on Thursday, Dawn news reported. On December 27, the Cabinet placed Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur on the Exit Control List (ECL) to prevent them from flying abroad after they were named in a Supreme Court-appointed joint investigative team probing fake bank accounts.

We accept responsibilty for Nazi crimes in Greece: Merkel

Athens: Germany recognises its historical responsibility for crimes committed by the Nazis in Greece, Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Friday on her first visit to Athens since 2014. “We recognise our historical responsibility. We know how much suffering we, as Germany in the time of Nazism, have brought to Greece,” she said. “That is why it’s a lesson for us to do everything to have good relations with Greece, and to lend each other support for the prosperity of both countries.” Tensions linger over wartime reparations for the World War II Nazi occupation of Greece, with Berlin arguing the issue was settled in 1960.
