Pakistan has raised $1 billion with a 7-year sukuk, offering an interest rate of 7.95%, the highest return the South Asian nation has ever paid on an Islamic bond, a finance ministry official said on Tuesday.
The issuance comes at a time when Pakistan's gross foreign reserves have fallen to nearly $17 billion from $19 billion in the past two weeks due to debt repayments.
