Maryam Nawaz Sharif breaks silence over meeting of Sharif family reps with COAS General Bajwa

ISLAMABAD: PML-N vice president Maryam Nawaz on Wednesday denied that any person representing former prime minister Nawaz Sharif met COAS General Qamar Javed Bajwa.

A journalist — during an informal conversation outside the Islamabad High Court — asked Maryam if the "establishment" and the PML-N leadership had come to "an agreement" since Nawaz's speeches along with hers were aired on television.

"Maybe the media should tell us why our speeches are being broadcast," she responded, saying "tyranny and pressure tactics" only work to a certain extent and are not always fruitful.

The PML-N leader denied knowledge of a dinner being hosted at the General Headquarters (GHQ), adding however, "I believe the political leadership was called over to discuss the issue of Gilgit-Baltistan".

She said that Nawaz has a heart condition and that she was not in favour of such a meeting.

"Gilgit-Baltistan is a political issue," she said, adding that "it should be resolved in the parliament, not at the GHQ".

"Neither should the GHQ summon the political leadership on such matters nor should the political leadership go there," Maryam said.
