Nawaz issued diplomatic passport

Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif and PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif resolved not to come under PTI’s pressure, especially on their key demand of early elections.

PM Shehbaz and his brother met at the Avenfield flats for four hours after the younger Sharif arrived in the British capital after concluding his trip to Egypt for the COP27 climate conference.

A source shared that in the meeting, only Nawaz, Shahbaz, Maryam, Suleman Sharif, Hasan and Hussain Nawaz and rest of the family members were present. No one from the party was asked to join the meeting.

Nawaz told Shahbaz to “continue doing his best to take Pakistan out of the economic crisis” and “not succumb to any kind of pressure”.

The brothers resolved that the elections will be held on time and PTI chief Imran Khan’s planned march on Islamabad will be dealt with legally, shared the source.

When the PM arrived for the meeting, he told the waiting media that “Pakistan has won the match against New Zealand, Alhamdullilah. Let’s pray that Pakistan wins in the final as well. Congratulations to the whole nation on this victory”.

When asked if he will be discussing the appointment of the next army chief with the PML-N supremo, the PM said: “I have come today to meet my elder brother and my family. I am meeting them and their children after a long time.”

After the end of the meeting, he was again pressed as to when the next chief of army staff will be appointed but the PM dodged the question again and said: “It was a family meeting with my brother, my nieces and my nephews and rest of the family joined too. We had lunch, gup shup and congratulations to all of you on Pakistan’s win.”

The PM arrived at Hasan Nawaz’s office in London in full police protocol to meet Nawaz Sharif. The PML-N leader and Federal Defence Minister Khawaja Asif and legislator Malik Ahmad Khan welcomed PM on his arrival to the office.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan government on Thursday issued a diplomatic passport to former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. The passport was issued after clearance from the Foreign Ministry, sources said.

The federal government has issued a diplomatic passport to Pakistan Muslim League-N leader Nawaz Sharif. The passport will be valid for 5 years.

The passport has been sent to Nawaz Sharif via Passport and Immigration office. The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government suspended the PML-N leader’s passport after he was declared an absconder by the court. The PML-N leader was issued a regular passport earlier.
