PML-N questions Gen Bajwa’s visit to China

Agency News

Islamabad, Oct 6: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has questioned recent visit of Chief of the Army Staff to China and claimed that Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) government was pursuing a flawed foreign policy.

Saadia Abbasi, a senator belonging to PML-N, as quoted by Dawn, said on Friday that the PTI government seemed weak while shaping the foreign policy.

She said the Chief of the Army Staff Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa visited China following a controversial statement about the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor by a member of the federal cabinet, adding that now Gen Bajwa was in Jordan to sign a defence deal. “Where is the defence minister?” she questioned.

Ms Abbasi, who is the sister of former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, said in the Senate on Friday that China, Saudi Arabia and Qatar had always stood by Pakistan in the hour of need and accused the PTI government of making the country’s relations with these friendly countries controversial because of its animosity towards the PML-N.

She said that the incumbent government had no idea how to run the country’s foreign policy. She noted that international agreements and talks were of sensitive nature and required maturity. (UNI)
