Islamabad, Nov 24 (ANI): Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) president Shahbaz Sharif has said that his elder brother Nawaz Sharif would end his exile, and return to Pakistan on Sunday.

We will fly on Sunday on Saudi Airlines directly from Medina to Lahore, Shahbaz told ARY One World television.

Shahbaz went on to say that Nawaz Sharif, who met Saudi King Abdullah on Friday, would return along with his wife Kulsoom Nawaz, and before returning they could go on a pilgrimage to Mecca.

On September, Nawaz Sharif was deported back to Jeddah when he reached Islamabad after staying in exile for seven years.

Expressing his disappointment on the disagreement over the one-point agenda discussed at the last all-parties conference (APC), Shahbaz said that he would contest the elections from the platform of the All Parties Democratic Movement (APDM), the Daily Times reported.

He also said that the Saudi King was a well-wisher of Pakistan, and had always extended his support to the country and his family.

When asked about the possibility of any alliance with the PML-Q, he ruled out any reconciliation with this faction.

Shahbaz urged all political forces to join hands for the restoration of the Constitution and democracy.

If we did not join hands, history will never forgive us, and if we gathered at one platform, we would be able to put the country on the right path, he said. (ANI)
