Differences between the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and the Pakistan Peoples Party have started to narrow after Shehbaz Sharif and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari held two back-to-back meetings at the Parliament House.
Shehbaz first entered Bilawal’s chamber and held a meeting with him. Later on, the PPP chairman went the opposition leader in the National Assembly’s chamber and met him.
