ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal on Wednesday categorically rejected the possibility of handing over Dr Shakeel Afridi to the United States.

In a statement issued on Thursday, the foreign office spokesman announced that there were no chances of deal with the US over Dr Shakeel Afridi.

He also denied reports of handing Afridi to US in exchange of former Pakistan’s ambassador to US Hussain Haqqani.
