ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif on Wednesday said that he can revive contact between PPP leader Asif Ali Zardari and PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif if he is instructed by the party’s high command.
Asif said he is certain that Zardari will agree to revive dialogue with the PML-N leadership.
“Yes, if I am instructed by Nawaz Sharif, I can play a role to revive dialogue,” said the foreign minister.
“I am a political worker. Politics is the name of possibilities. Doors are not kept shut forever.”
However, PPP spokesperson Senator Farhatullah Babar said that as per the policy of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the party has decided to not maintain any contact with the PML-N leadership.
Earlier, Zardari expressed that he has no interest in establishing contact with the former prime minister.
Zardari said the PPP also has no interest in becoming part of a ‘Grand National Dialogue’ proposed recently by Nawaz Sharif.
Sources quoted Zardari saying that the PML-N chief has a different attitude when he is in power and a completely different tone when he is not.
