Shahbaz, Nawaz to meet in London
Shahbaz Sharif will embark on a two-day visit to the UK, during which he will represent Pakistan at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II and meet the former premier.
Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif is scheduled to hold a three-hour long meeting with PML-N supremo and his elder Nawaz Sharif in London, as per local media reports.
According to The News International report, Shahbaz Sharif will embark on a two-day visit to the UK, during which he will represent Pakistan at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II and meet the former premier.
Sources privy to the matter have said that Shahbaz will visit England on Sunday, a day after concluding his Uzbekistan visit, where he attended the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Council of Head of States (CHS) summit.
During the meeting in London, Shahbaz is expected to brief Nawaz on the country’s economic and political situation.
The coalition government has not been able to achieve political and economic stability since its formation in April, while decisions like increasing petrol prices and soaring inflation have drawn criticism to Shahbaz Sharif’s government.
Senior journalist Suhail Warraich had revealed to Geo News in late August that Nawaz is neither satisfied with the performance of Shahbaz nor Finance Minister Miftah Ismail.
Shahbaz Sharif will return to Pakistan on Monday soon after attending the state funeral for the late Queen, Pakistani media reported.
