Apparently he was also trying to pitch for Pakistani unskilled and low pay workers to be employed in Japan. Japanese, seeing the problems there people are causing in Paris and rest of Europe, said a firm NO.

Seems like Bilawal has been picked to lead this country with no skill and nothing solid. The media has been controlled and this guy has been promoted as efficient. However, he is only causing more expenses on visits to other countries and there's no outcome at all. What a failure of our great nation that we have laboratory leaders like him
