PM Shahid Khaqan meets Nawaz Sharif after NSC meeting

ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi met former premier Nawaz Sharif today after chairing a meeting of the National Security Committee (NSC) at the residence of Chaudhry Muneer.

As per the details, they discussed the NSC meeting which was held to review Nawaz’s controversial statement on the Mumbai attacks.

The meeting was also attended by Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz and other senior party leaders.

Earlier today, the NSC met and categorically denied former premier Nawaz Sharif's recent statement on the 2008 Mumbai attacks and unanimously termed it "completely false and misleading".

The NSC, which met under the chair of Prime Minister Abbasi, said in its statement that the country's top civil and military leadership conducted a detailed review of Nawaz's statement printed in a newspaper interview on Saturday.

The participants observed that it was very unfortunate that the opinion arising out of either misconceptions or grievances was being presented in disregard of concrete facts and realities.

"Pakistan will continue its efforts to eliminate terrorism on all fronts," said an official statement of the NSC.
