RAWALPINDI: Accompanied by Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif visited General Headquarters in Rawalpindi to meet Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif, Express News reported on Friday.

The premier was reportedly briefed about the prevailing internal security situation in the country during his visit.

The military and political leadership came together to chalk out a plan to eliminate terrorists after Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan gunmen stormed a school in Peshawar on December 16 and killed 148 people, mostly students, in cold blood.

    The PM travelling to the GHQ to meet army chief. Is this a sick joke being perpetrated on the people of the country in the name of democracy? Why did he not summon the army chief to his office and get a briefing there. With weaklings such as these in the PMs chair in Pakistan, is it any surprise that the rest of the world prefers to deal with the army rather than the civilian government?

    @common sense
    I am not satisfied with your answer and I am not talking about this meeting in particular, see all his history meetings he prefers to be with someone like he has no confidence in him, if it was interior minister’s domain why did he meet? If he was meeting why interior minister had to be along? He is a strange kind of a leader.. always with someone and has a very very strange body language really not suitable to a leader of any stature.

    It is so traumatic to see this Incredibly Shrinking PM!!!

    He should just resign if he has an iota of dignity. General Raheel sat at the head of the table!
