Chairman Senate Raza Rabbani on Tuesday called for inter-institutional dialogue to bring the country out of its prevailing crisis and tackle ongoing issues.

"Inter-institutional dialogue between the executive [branch of government], parliament and judiciary is imperative for paving the way for amicable solution of the country's issues," Rabbani told a seminar organised in Quetta to remember lawyers who lost their lives in the Civil Hospital suicide attack on Aug 8, 2016.

"The senate's forum is ready to host this inter-institutional dialogue," Rabbani said.

Rabbani said democracy must prevail and rule of law must be ensured to make Pakistan a strong country where there is national harmony.

The senate chairman, however, said that the Parliament has always proved to be the weakest institution in the history of Pakistan, despite the fact that limitations on all institutions were fixed under the 1973 Constitution.

While discussing the security situation in the country Rabbani said, "It is ironic that a security division is being formed to guard those coming to Pakistan to work on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor but the people of the country remain unsafe."
