ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has reached the federal capital along with his family today (Thursday) after his trip was delayed on Monday due to an infection in his leg.

Soon after assuming his office in Islamabad, the premier will prepare to preside over a crucial meeting of the National Security Council on Friday.

“The prime minister will chair a meeting of National Security Council and matters of national security will be discussed,” announced the PM Secretariat.

The Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC), three services chiefs, Prime Minister’s adviser on national security, PM’s special assistant on national security, foreign secretary and other senior officials of defence and foreign ministries will also participate in Friday’s meeting.

Earlier this week on 18th, a statement issued by the PM House had stated that the premier was having a fever following an infection in one of his legs, for which he even underwent a treatment in Lahore.

Since his arrival on July 9 from London, the prime minister was running official affairs of the country through a camp office in Lahore.

The premier had left for London in May for a routine medical examination when his doctors recommended him an immediate open-heart surgery.
