KARACHI: The Pakistan Peoples Party said on Tuesday that “Pakistan’s strong narrative” could not find space in world capitals owing to ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s “flopped foreign policy”.

At a meeting held at Bilawal House and presided over by PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari with top leadership as participants, multiple issues came under discussion. The meeting was expected to continue on Wednesday as well.

“An important meeting of the Pakistan Peoples Party was held at Bilawal House today afternoon. Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and former president of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari jointly presided over the meeting,” said a statement issued after the meeting. “The meeting discussed the statement of Nawaz Sharif and noted that he as the prime minister held Pakistan diplomatically incommunicado by not appointing a full-fledged foreign minister for four years. The meeting recalled that Pakistan’s strong narrative could not find space in the world capitals due to the flopped foreign policy of Nawaz Sharif and his government.”

Those who attended the meeting included MNA Faryal Talpur, president of the PPP women wing; Sherry Rehman, Leader of the Opposition in the Senate; Syed Khursheed Shah, Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly; former chief minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah, PPP Sindh president Nisar Ahmed Khuhro, Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah, MNA Syed Naveed Qamar, PPP Sindh senior vice president Manzoor Wassan, PPP Sindh general secretary Waqar Mehdi, and PPP Karachi division president Saeed Ghani.
