Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif Saturday reiterated the need to improve relationships with Pakistan’s neighbouring countries.

Nawaz Sharif asked : “How can you achieve a global status when your neighbours are upset with you, or you are (upset) with them?

The former PM said that the country has to fix its affairs with India and Afghanistan as well, adding that it also needs to “strengthen affairs further with Iran and China”.

Addressing at PML-N’s sixth parliamentary board meeting in Lahore, the politician said: two Indian premiers — Atal Bihari Vajpayee in 1999 and Narendra Modi in 2015 — visited Pakistan. “Did anyone come before them?” he asked.

The ex-PM then criticised the PTI government for “trying to sabotage” the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. He further said that there was “only talk but no work” about making use of the country’s coal resources.

Nawaz said: “Each time, we came and did good work for the country’s development and each time we were ousted.”

“Why were we ousted?” he asked. “I should know why we were ousted in 1993, in 1999.

“[Was it] because we handled matters the right way? [Was it] because we said the fighting in Kargil should not have taken place? Is this why we were ousted?” he asked, adding that he was “proven right”.

“Those who have brought the country to this point, they should also be held accountable”, Nawaz reiterated.



Nawaz Sharif called chairman PTI an inept individual 

“I do not understand how a country’s governance is handed over to an inept person (Imran Khan). You take the powers from a well-run government and hand them to an inept person,” Nawaz said.



The three-time prime minister said that the nation needs to realise that economic destruction started in 2019 and by 2022, everything in the country had collapsed. “If Shehbaz Sharif hadn’t taken over, the country would have defaulted.”

The former prime minister asserted that his party’s top aim of coming into politics should be to solve the myriad of issues facing the country, including poverty, unemployment, illiteracy and underdevelopment.

There should be an agreement between us that you are acquiring tickets to serve this country and take it to its real position,” Nawaz told his party leaders.

Nawaz said even though he was out of sight, but was still very close to the party members by heart, adding that he always remembered his friends and companions
