A loan would be rolled over in a day or two, and the finance secretary, Hamid Yaqub Shaikh, informed the National Assembly's Standing Committee on Finance. In the end, a decision was made. Another Uturn will be made this week according to the finance secretary. Pakistan has to repay 2 commercial moans, which is a total of $1.3 billion, to get money back instantly.
