The NSC meeting will be attended by Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Defense Minister Pervez Khattak, Interior Minister Ijaz Shah, Kashmir Affairs Minister Ali Amin Gandapur, Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee Chairman Gen Zubair Mehmood Hayat, the services chiefs and the directors general of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Military Operations.

According to sources, a federal cabinet meeting, which was scheduled for Wednesday (today) has been postponed, owing to the NSC meeting. The Prime Minister House sources said the federal cabinet meeting will now be held on Friday.
