Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Monday urged all political parties to come to a single page to overcome the crises that the country is facing right now.

Bilawal claimed that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s and his party’s inability to take matters seriously was damaging not only for the Opposition but also for the entire country and democracy.

“He [PTI chief Imran Khan] says that he can sit with terrorists for talks but not with parliamentarians,” said Bilawal.


“We [all political parties] will have to unite on a minimum common agenda to rid the nation of crisis,” the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chairman said while addressing the inaugural event of his party’s initiative to celebrate 2023 as the Golden Jubilee Year of the Constitution.

“If all political parties agree on a Code of Conduct, we can overcome the crisis and chart a path to progress,” he added.

“But if every party decides it will neither play nor allow others to play, the nation will be the ultimate loser,” warned Bilawal.

Emphasizing that this is the last chance for political parties to save the country, Bilawal said that if they failed to do so, history won’t be kind to them.

Speaking to Dawn, PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry said, “I won’t rule out the possibility of my party’s participation in any dialogue proposed by Bilawal. But I advise him not to become a part of the government’s ‘unconstitutional’ acts”.

Fawad further said that the establishment and all political parties must sit together and give some space to each other.
