ISLAMABAD:

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Friday said that Pakistan was economically strong and stable in 2018, and the people have paid a heavy price for political instability.

National Assembly Deputy Speaker Zahid Akram Durrani met the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supreme leader in London. Former finance minister Ishaq Dar was also present on the occasion.

During the meeting, they discussed the overall political and economic situation of the country.

Durrani said that Pakistan needs political and economic stability. He said that the incumbent government found the country surrounded by serious economic crises.

He added that the current government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, has resolved to deal with the challenges facing the country.

The deputy speaker said that Pakistan was pushed into an economic quagmire by the previous regime. He said that Prime Minister Shehbaz is working day and night to take the country on the path of development.

He remarked that Pakistan is currently going through a difficult period, and to make the country economically strong, all political parties will have to think beyond politics.
