Zardari- Sharif talks on cards to pull crisis-hit Pak out of quagmireJune 1st, 2009 - 5:56 pm ICT by ANI
Islamabad, Jun.1 (ANI): The bitter relationship between Pakistan President Asif Ali and the Pakistan Muslim League -Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif seems to be improving, as both the leaders are expected to meet to discuss the grave issues facing the country currently.
According to sources, Sharif, who had earlier refused to meet the Zardari, has now softened his stance, and is willing to meet the President to discuss ways to pull the nation out of the prevalent crisis.
The sources said the thaw in the relationship was primarily due to the Supreme Court’s verdict declaring the Sharif brother’s eligible to contest elections.
They claimed that Sharif was not averse to meet Zardari, and for the greater interest of democracy and the future of Pakistan he could meet anyone, The Nation reports.
It seems that Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif is also eager to mend ways with the Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP), as he has not removed any of the PPP ministers from his cabinet after he was reinstated to the post.
He believes that in the current turbulent circumstances it would be impossible for any single political party to steer the country out of the prevailing crises.
“I firmly believe the issues are so grave that no single party can deal with this alone. We all have to deal with them together,” Sharif said. (ANI)
