Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf, while defending the country's human rights record, has claimed that no country gives as much regard to human rights as Pakistan.

Ashraf said it is the responsibility of the media to promote a positive image of Pakistan by showcasing the positive side of the country.

"While the media portrays the masked face of a bomber, it should also show faces of people who spread positivity in Pakistan," Ashraf said, adding that it is unfortunate that the world does not give Pakistan credit for its positive moves and only promotes a negative image.

He also urged the international community to endorse Pakistan's efforts in eliminating negative aspects of society, specifically recent measures taken for women's empowerment, poverty eradication, and immunization.
