Federal government rejects TLP key demand

ISLAMABAD - Federal government has refused to accept his key demand to place the name of Asia Bibi on the Exit Control List (ECL).

The negotiating team comprising Religious Affairs Minister Noorul Haq Qadri and Minister for National Food Security Sahibzada Mehboob Sultan was constituted by Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday.

The team updated the premier on the results of talks hours before his departure to China.

The team has full mandate of the premier for holding talks with TLP leaders and is also in close contact with Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar for consultations.

During the last 24 hours, the team held four rounds of talks with TLP leadership, pressing them to call off its protest against the Supreme Court decision suspending the death sentence of Asia Bibi.
