All Parties Conference
Pakistan is going through troubling times. With an uptick in terrorist activities and dire economic conditions, Pakistan’s socio-economic situation has worsened. Amid this backdrop, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif called an All Parties Conference on February 7 and invited the country’s political leadership to discuss ways to overcome the challenges the country is facing. The meeting will be attended by all stakeholders, including Rangers and officers from intelligence institutions.
The invitation was also extended to PTI Chairman Imran Khan. It was reported that Economic Affairs Minister Sardar Ayaz Sadiq, a former speaker of the National Assembly, contacted PTI leaders Asad Qaiser and Pervez Khattak. Ayaz Sadiq conveyed the premier’s invitation for Imran Khan to the two PTI leaders.
