Indian media distorted Sharif's 26/11 statement- Pak PM

PM Abbasi expressed satisfaction over thriving Pak China relations in all fields

He was responding to a question regarding the recent emergence of dissenting voices from within the party against Nawaz Sharif's policy lines - adopted after the July 28 Supreme Court decision disqualifying Sharif from holding elected office.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shah Mahmood Qureshi said on Friday that the narrative of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was more unsafe than his recent statement.

Shahbaz while defending his sibling, said: "No one is more patriotic than Nawaz Sharif".

Earlier, Nawaz, in an interview to a local newspaper published on May 12, had said, "Militant organisations are active".

Shehbaz also claimed that Nawaz Sharif's remarks were taken out of context. Around 120 lawmakers of the party attended the meeting.

"We have not been consulted for the candidature of the caretaker prime minister". Undeterred, Nawaz Sharif has suggested constitution of a national commission to make a final decision on the issue.

His remarks triggered a major political controversy, ahead of general election in Pakistan.

Bashar al-Assad has travelled to Russian Federation to meet Vladimir Putin
According to a Kremlin statement, Mr Assad said "stability is improving" in Syria, "opening the door to the political process we started some time ago".

PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif chaired a meeting of the ruling party. "The voters are with us because of our performance and we will go into the polls with full confidence".

The court has raised over 100 questions to Nawaz Sharif, his daughter and son-in-law.

According to sources, four to five PML-N legislators expressed reservations over Nawaz Sharif's interview on the Mumbai attacks and termed it "inappropriate".

Some other legislators said that they had complete confidence in Nawaz Sharif and endorsed his narrative.

Abbasi maintained that Sharif had not said or implied that the Mumbai attackers were sent from Pakistan deliberately.

In an attempt to do damage control, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi also intervened and said that media reports misquoted the former prime minister.
