LAHORE: Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani met the Sharif brothers in Lahore on Saturday. Gen Kayani met both Nawaz and Shahbaz Sharif at the former Chief Ministers residence in Model Town Lahore.

Kayani, who was in plain clothes, had lunch with the Sharif’s after the meeting, which took place for around an hour.

The Army chief congratulated the Sharif brothers over their victory in the recent general elections. Matters of the state and future course of action were also discussed in the meeting.

Nawaz, Shahbaz and Kayani spoke about democracy’s success in the country after the first time a government completed its five-year tenure.

All three hoped that the democratic process would continue in the same manner which will help strengthen the institutions in the country.

Sources said that PML-N’s foreign policy and Pakistan’s internal security issues also came under discussion.

The Sharif's emphasised their party’s top priorities, which included stability in the country’s deteriorating security conditions.

The Army chief had also given Imran Khan a phone call few days ago, congratulating him and his party over the victory in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
