PM summons National Security Council meeting

PESHAWAR: After returning from important China visit, Prime Minister Imran Khan has summoned a meeting of the National Security Council today (Tuesday) to review security situation in the country.

The meeting is expected to discuss the situation in the country following violent protests over the verdict of the Supreme Court of Pakistan over Asia Bibi case. The Christian woman was acquitted of blasphemy charges by the apex court which triggered country-wide protests. The protests ended after three days after negotiations between the government and the protesters. Several arrests have been made after these protests and the government is mulling over a strategy to avoid the recurrence of such protests.

The prime minister will also inform the meeting about his visit to China and meetings with Chines premier, president and Russian prime minister. Security situation along the Afghan and Indian borders may also be discussed during the moot.
