new prime minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, has made many promises to change his country. Mr Khan gave speech on television on Sunday just one day after being sworn in as Pakistan's new leader. He spoke about improving his country's international image. In his speech, Khan vowed to improve relations with Pakistan's neighbours India and Afghanistan. He also said he would work on repairing ties with United States. Relations between Pakistan and USA have worsened in past few years because USA accused Pakistan of helping terrorists. Khan also promised to create millions of jobs, reform health and education, help poor, develop opportunities for young people and fight corruption.
