Sources close to Bilawal said that the purpose of the meeting was to congratulate the PML-N supremo and outline steps for strengthening democracy. They said Bilawal’s London trip was aimed at upholding the Constitution and he wanted to convey this message by holding a meeting with Nawaz.

Sources from both sides said Nawaz and Bilawal agreed that misgivings of the past should be forgotten. Both sides agreed to do politics against each other but stand together for democracy, free media, human rights, non-interference in politics by any institution, and supremacy of the Constitution.

They further said that Bilawal neither brought any agenda nor did he compile one in the huddle. However, both the leaders agreed on tackling Pakistan’s major challenges by keeping aside all political differences.

Bilawal and Nawaz agreed to stay in direct contact and to form a joint committee to deal with the disputed issues.
