Two “friendly states” could play their role to bring down political tensions in Pakistan during the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) meeting of foreign ministers in Islamabad as a no-trust move against Prime Minister Imran Khan is pending before the national Assembly.
The details have emerged as the prime reason for the government extending the voting on no-trust move beyond the scheduled OIC conference in Islamabad on March 23.
Insiders said on Wednesday that some friendly countries are ready to play their role to cool down the political heat in the country. “Some important political meetings are scheduled from representatives of these countries,” they said.
They said that two countries are likely to play their role in minimising the political temperature that has shot up in the wake of no-trust move against the prime minister with both sides announcing rallies in Islamabad ahead of the vote.
“Three days ago deputy head of mission of China met Chaudhry brothers,” they said while citing it an effort in this regard.
Two days back, federal government decided to summon National Assembly session for voting on no-trust motion after OIC moot in Islamabad on March 23.
According to details, the meeting of OIC foreign ministers is scheduled for March 22 and 23 in Islamabad. The voting on no-trust move is likely scheduled for March 29.
The decision has emerged after Prime Minister Imran Khan chaired a session of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) core committee at PM House.
