According to local media reports, Advisor to the Chief Minister (CM) for Science, Technology and Information Technology Ziaullah Khan Bangash met with Facebook spokesman Sahar Tariq.
Advisor to KP Chief Minister said that according to the CM’s vision, KPK fully supported Facebook and promised to review the legislation that is causing difficulties, as well as other Internet platforms, as most of the young people in the country use the platform.
