PM Imran Khan announces to convene National Security Council meeting

By

Islamabad: Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan announced that it will hold a National Security Council (NSC) meeting tomorrow (Monday) to discuss the current situation in Afghanistan and the country’s national security.

According to sources, the Prime Minister will listen to a briefing on the latest developments of the National Security Council. Senior Pakistani ministers and military leaders will attend the meeting.

At the same time, Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid, Federal Information and Broadcasting Minister Fawad Chowdhury and National Security Adviser Mud Youssef will also attend the meeting.

Earlier in December, Fawad Chaudhry Hussain had said that the opposition’s decision to boycott the meeting of Parliamentary Committee on National Security is regrettable.

In a tweet, he said it is for the first time in seven decades that a government is going to present its security policy before the parliament.

The minister had said it was not a political issue, but a national security matter. He urged the opposition to review its decision and participate in the meeting.

The reaction came after opposition parties announced to boycott the in-camera session of the parliamentary committee on national security to discuss the security situation in the region.

The opposition stated that it not only participated in important meetings and briefings on national issues, but also put forward their suggestions. The joint statement stated that the government is using parliament as a rubber stamp, which is unacceptable
