Nawaz receives flak from govt for meeting Afghan NSA | The Express Tribune

Ministers from the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) lambasted former premier Nawaz Sharif on Saturday for meeting with Afghanistan National Security Adviser (NSA) Hamdullah Mohib in London.

Several federal ministers criticised the meeting, pictures of which were shared by Afghanistan’s National Security Council’s Twitter account stating that ‘matters of mutual interest’ were discussed between the two.

Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry said that “this is why sending Nawaz Sharif abroad was dangerous because such people become accomplices in international conspiracies”.

He further said that Nawaz’s meeting with Mohib, RAW’s biggest ally in Afghanistan, was an example of such an action.

“Modi, Mohib or Amrullah Saleh [Afghanistan vice president]; every enemy of Pakistan is a close friend of Nawaz Sharif,” Fawad said.

Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari criticised Nawaz for “shameless self-interest” to protect his looted wealth and said the meeting comes after the Afghan NSA had called the country a “brothel”.

The minister added that the only common interest of Indian spy agency RAW is to attack Pakistan,

Commenting on the meeting, Minister for Science and Technology Shibli Faraz said that it was “nothing new”.

He said Nawaz had always “kept the company of Pakistan’s enemies”, whether they are Jindal or Modi, and now the Afghan NSA who called Pakistan a ‘brothel’. 

Faraz added that it was a shame the former premier was insensitive to national self-respect.

Minister for Maritime Affairs Ali Haider Zaidi also said that it was appalling to see ‘fugitive’ Nawaz meeting with Hamdullah Mohib.

“Nawaz has violated our stated policy of having no official contact with this despicable fool,” Zaidi said.

Chairperson of the Parliamentary Special Committee on Kashmir Shehryar Khan Afridi said Nawaz’s 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. His statements on crucial issues already used by India at global forums,” Afridi said.
