Pakistan Army agrees to help with the security of the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2022, which will be held in Qatar.
The federal cabinet approved the agreement of the Pakistan Army to provide security support in the upcoming mega football event from November 20 to December 18.
The event will be held for the first time in the Gulf country.
According to the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP), Qatar will give Pakistan $2 billion in bilateral assistance to help ease the South Asian nation’s funding crunch and the consequent risk of default.
Pakistan will also receive $1 billion in oil funding from Saudi Arabia and similar investments from the UAE.
SBP deputy governor Murtaza Syed stated in a briefing that all the funds are expected over twelve months. BKM/ Expat Media
