Shehbaz emphasizes for re-energizing Commonwealth


Offers best wishes to King Charles

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who is in London, has emphasized for re-energizing Commonwealth with a focus on youth empowerment.

In a tweet on Saturday, the Prime Minister said that he made a case in this regard whilst addressing the Commonwealth Leaders’ meeting.

The Prime Minister said that he also shared with the world leaders the details of Youth Programme that is based on Education, Employment, Engagement and Environment. He said women and members of minority communities are special focus of the loan scheme.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif regretted the controversy tried to generate by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf around Pakistan’s participation in the SCO’s meeting in India.

In a tweet today, he said it should not be surprising though PTI Chairman Imran Khan has had no qualms about imperiling the country’s vital foreign policy interests in the past too. This is what they did when they were in power. He said everything including the conduct of interstate relations is a plaything for the PTI.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif congratulated King Charles III after he was crowned in a historic coronation ceremony on Saturday, said the Foreign Office in a statement.

King Charles III and Queen Camilla were crowned earlier Saturday at Westminster Abbey in London which was also attended by PM Shehbaz, who represented Pakistan.

According to the statement, PM Shehbaz conveyed best wishes on behalf of the Government of Pakistan and its people to King Charles III. The prime minister has arrived at the Westminster Abbey along with other foreign dignitaries, heads and representatives of Commonwealth member countries to witness the coronation of 74-year-old King.
