What I am not able to understand is that people here are assuming that there exists a perfect coordination between the provinces and the federation. Due to different parties ruling different provinces, there is always exists a misco-ordination to certain extent. For example, I strongly feel that KPK CM at least should have been there with CM Baluchistan and CM Punjab since PTI is not in a direct political conflict with PML-N (PPP is leading opposition in the centre while leading the house in Sindh). But PTI is quite over the issue so as to did they receive any formal or informal request from PMO regarding visit to China.

There you go! The Prime Minister visits the ISI headquarters! That shows who is the boss in Pakistan. Shouldn't it be the other way about- the ISI chiefs summoned to the PM's office?

Can you imagine any country that is not a banana republic where the prime minister "visits" the intelligence headquarters to discuss security policy?
