Pacifica | 6 years ago | Reply @Aam Admi Bechara: Shopping at Harrod's? Jokes apart, it is strange. PIA has long-range 777s that can easily fly non-stop to Washington without having to stop to refuel on the way and as the PM he could easily commandeer one of those. He does seem to stop at London going and coming every time. Just now when he'd gone to New York for the UN session he stopped at London both ways.
Zahid | 6 years ago | Reply Useless trip of PM, every time he visits with his family now this time Maryam Nawaz otherwise shahbaz and Nawaz visits every where, he always visits London because he has business there Good Luck Pakistan not hope with Nawaz
