Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday chaired a special meeting of all parliamentary leaders to evolve a united stand and response in the wake of surgical strikes by India on terror launching pads across the LoC. Pakistan and India have been engaged in the war of words after surgical strikes by India last week.
Pakistan has denied India’s claim of surgical strikes and termed it crsoss-border firing. Radio Pakistan reported that Sharif chaired the important meeting of all parliamentary leaders in capital Islamabad.
“The Prime Minister will take the political leaders into confidence about the developing situation at the eastern border in the wake of blistering statements from the Indian leadership,” it reported.
Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry briefed the meeting about the latest situation in Kashmir and the Line of Control.
Imran Khan, who is protesting to remove the prime minister over alleged corruption, skipped the meeting but his party was represented by former foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi.
