ISLAMABAD: The fifth joint session of the parliament under the ruling government will be held on March 17, said Federal Minister Khursheed Shah on Wednesday.
President Zardari, who will chair the session, will become the first president of the country to be addressing a fifth joint session of a parliament.
A joint session of the parliament is summoned every year under ruling presidents.
The session, the first of its kind this year, is expected to review Pakistan’s troubled ties with the US. The review is being considered key to getting Pakistani-US diplomatic relations onto a more solid footing after US air strikes last November killed 24 Pakistani soldiers and brought the relationship to its lowest point in years.
