British High Commissioner meets Nawaz Sharif
British High Commissioner Adam Thomson met Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif in Raiwind on Saturday and congratulated him for winning the elections, reported Express News.
During the meeting, they discussed political and regional matters and also talked about Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain’s controversial statements.
PML-N leader and former Punjab chief minister Shahbaz Sharif and Senator Ishaq Dar were also present during the meeting.
On Friday, Thomson went to meet Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital (SKMH). During the meeting, Imran urged Thompson to take notice of Altaf’s speech in accordance with British laws.
Earlier this week, Thomson held a press conference saying that Altaf’s remarks on Sunday threatening PTI supporters and demanding Karachi to be separated from the rest of Pakistan should be taken seriously.
Altaf’s statement had caused uproar across the country, although the MQM chief clarified the next day that he didn’t make any demand for secession and that his statement was misinterpreted by the media.
