The foreign missions have fallen short of funds, hampering diplomatic work and leaving the diplomates in the lurch, 24NewsHD TV channel reported on Thursday.

According to sources, diplomates have been facing embarrassment due to delay nonpayment of rent for their residences abroad. The insiders said that the lack of funds has halted working in most of the embassies.

The passport staff posted in American and European missions have been without salaries too, they said, adding the foreign affairs minister has halted the funds.

Foreign Office Spokesperson Mumtaz Zahra Baloch' stated that the authorities have been looking into the matter.

Delay in payment of the international diplomatic missions is due to a system, the official said, adding that the missions in Europe and the United States will re-check the problems that have been pointed out, the spokesman's office said
