Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz has said that her lawyer Amjad Pervez has recused himself from the case because of his health condition after he had contracted Covid-19.

“I told him to contest my case, and until he recovers, I will arrange another counsel for my case,” said Maryam.

A journalist questioned Maryam whether Pakistan should recognise the new Taliban government in Afghanistan.


Maryam responded, “Pakistan must accept the will of the Afghan people and refrain from imposing its decision on Afghanistan.”

The PML-N leader said Afghanistan was a sovereign country and insisted that Pakistan must not interfere in the internal matters of the neighbouring country.
