Hina Rabbani Khar confessed in an old interview that, as foreign minister, she had to deal with accusations from friends that Pakistan was aiding terrorists, and that there were "waves of truth" to those charges.

Hina Rabbani Khar, who received star treatment during her maiden official visit to India, will serve as Pakistan's junior foreign minister for the second time in Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif's new 37-member cabinet, which was presented on Tuesday.

During her time as Pakistan's minister of state for foreign affairs, from February 2011 to March 2013, Khar was the country's youngest and first female minister. She has been re-appointed to the same job, but as a junior Minister of State this time.
