Meanwhile, Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Bajwa and DG ISI were also present in the session.

During the meeting, the parliamentarians were taken into confidence over a deal between the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan and the government.

The top military officials briefed the political leadership about the emerging scenario in Afghanistan and the overall affairs of national security.

PML-N Senator Azam Nazir Tarrar said the decision to attend the PNSC meeting was made to listen to the authorities and the government on sensitive issues regarding national security.

The National Assembly passed a motion on November 5 – moved by the Law Minister, Barrister Farogh Naseem – to allow the use of the NA chamber on November 8 for a briefing to the Parliamentary Committee on matters linked to national security.

Senator Tarrar made it clear that the opposition wouldn’t give the administration any opportunity to misguide the officials and the masses on sensitive issues.

He had a detailed meeting with the former prime minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani in his chamber.
