Khursheed Shah wants Parliament's joint session on new US policy

Opposition Leader in the National Assembly, Khursheed Shah,
Opposition Leader in the National Assembly, Khursheed Shah, proposed on Wednesday calling a Joint Session of Parliament after Eid so a ‘strong’ response can be given to the new US policy for Pakistan.

The opposition leader termed US President Donald Trump’s new policy statement for Pakistan of ‘huge significance’.

He is speaking in the National Assembly during its 45th session.

He blamed the country’s foreign policy ‘failure’ over the past four years on the government’s decision to not have a dedicated separate foreign minister.

“Our foreign minister should have started today’s debate in the assembly,” he argued.

Shah also criticised Pakistan’s poor relations with most of its neighbours, saying “our neighbours hurl threats at us”.

The Pakistan Peoples Party’s senior leader came down hard on former ambassador Abdul Basit’s scathing letter to Pakistan’s envoy in US Aizaz Chaudhry.

“This is a failure of governance,” said Shah.
