ISLAMABAD – A Federal Cabinet meeting will be held in Islamabad in the chair of Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday (today), a PTI source told Daily Pakistan.

The much important meeting is scheduled to begin at 11am.

The cabinet is expected to approve a $5 million grant for the Dubai Expo.

It will also discuss the exchange of prisoners by China and Pakistan as well as the chairpersons of the Greek Council.

The formation of a coordination council is likely to be approved to end poverty and the members of the nursing council are likely to get the cabinet’s approval.
