LONDON: Former prime minister and PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif, in a recent meeting, met Afghan National Security Adviser Hamdullah Mohib and State Minister for Peace Sayed Sadat Naderi. The National Security Council of Afghanistan (NSCA) updated that the Afghan state minister for peace and NSA discussed “matters of mutual interest” with the former Pakistan prime minister. Both sides agreed that the policy of mutual respect and non-interference in each other’s internal affairs would be equally beneficial for each. In addition, it was noted that encouraging democracy would pave the way for both countries to more stable and prosperous outcomes. Maryam Nawaz, backing the meeting held, said the foundation of Nawaz’s ideology was the peaceful coexistence of Pakistan with its neighbours and he had “worked tirelessly” for it. “It is the very essence of diplomacy to talk to everyone, listen to their point of view and convey one’s own message across: something this government doesn’t comprehend and hence is a complete failure on the international front,” she said. Fawad Chaudhry and Shehryar Afridi blast Nawaz Sharif over meeting Federal Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry responded negatively to Nawaz’s meeting with Afghan officials and criticised him. He said that Nawaz’s meeting with Mohib, the biggest ally of RAW in Afghanistan, is an example of such an operation. In a statement on Twitter, Chaudhry said that sending Nawaz out of Pakistan was dangerous because such people become accomplices in international conspiracies. نواز شریف کو پاکستان سےباہر بھیجنا اس لئے خطرناک تھا کہ ایسے لوگ بین الاقوامی سازشوں میں مددگار بن جاتے ہیں نواز شریف کی افغانستان میں RAW کے سب سے بڑے حلیف حمداللہ محب سے ملاقات ایسی ہی کاروائ کی مثال ہے، مودی ، محب یا امراللہ صالح ہر پاکستان دشمن نواز شریف کا قریبی دوست ہے — Ch Fawad Hussain (@fawadchaudhry) July 24, 2021 State Minister Shehryar Afridi also blasted the former prime minister calling him an ally to Pakistan’s enemies. “Nawaz Sharif’s meeting with Afghan NSA proves his connections with Pakistan’s enemies,” claimed minister Shehryar Afridi. The meeting had proved that the former prime minister was a “tool to be used against Pakistani interests”, he said. Birds of a feather flock together. Nawaz Sharifs meeting with Afghan NSA proves his connections with Pakistan’s enemies. Again proved that Nawaz Sharif is a tool to be used against Pakistani interests.
