The session is scheduled for Monday, January 14.
The president will consult with the allies over the issue of Balochistan’s security.
Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf arrived in Quetta to meet Shia Muslim families refusing to bury their dead after devastating bombings.
At least 92 people were killed and 121 wounded Thursday in twin suicide attacks claimed by militant group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi in an area dominated by Shias from the Hazara ethnic minority.
It was the worst ever sectarian attack on Shias, who account for around 20 per cent of Pakistan’s 180 million people and are regularly targeted for attack by extremists.
Shia families have refused to bury their dead and vowed to continue a sit-in protest with thousands of others until the army takes over security in the city.
They have been sitting in the open with the bodies for the past 48 hours.
