Islamabad (Web Desk):Prime Minister Imran Khan is chaired a meeting of the National Security Committee (NSC) today (Thursday) at the Prime Minister's House in Islamabad.
Earlier today, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry had said that Prime Minister Imran Khan has summoned a meeting of the National Security Committee (NSC) today (Thursday).
The minister confirmed in a tweet that the meeting will be held at the Prime Minister’s House in the afternoon.
وزیر اعظم نے نیشنل سیکیورٹی کمیٹی کا اجلاس طلب کر لیا، اجلاس آج بعد دوپہر وزیر اعظم ہاؤس میں ہو گا— Ch Fawad Hussain (@fawadchaudhry) March 31, 2022
The NSC, which is the highest forum for coordination on security issues, is chaired by the prime minister and includes key federal ministers, the national security adviser, services chiefs and top intelligence officials.
These developments came just hours before the start of a crucial NA session at 4pm today (Thursday) and a day after PM Imran decided to show senior journalists "written evidence" of the letter he has been saying contains proof of a foreign conspiracy against Pakistan's government.
A debate on the no-trust motion against the premier is set to take place in today's NA session.
On Wednesday, the US State Department categorically denied US involvement in the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan, saying no US government agency or official had sent a letter to Pakistan on the current political situation in the country.
“There is no truth to these allegations,” said a State Department spokesperson while responding to questions about the alleged letter and US involvement in the no-confidence motion against the PTI government.
