Islamabad (Staff Report): Federal Cabinet has approved merger of Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) into Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.
According to sources, the recommendations will be presented in the Parliament.
At the meeting, it was decided the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) would be integrated with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa .

It was also decided in the meeting that the Frontier Crime Regulation (FCR) will be repealed after a constitutional amendment.
