‘PM off for medical check-up, meeting with Zardari’
ISLAMABAD:Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will proceed to London for a medical check-up sometime after May 20, official sources said.
During his trip PM Nawaz is also expected to discuss with top PPP leader Asif Ali Zardari the overall political scenario of the country in the wake of the Panama Papers, according to sources.

Apparently, acting on the adage ‘a wise enemy is better than a foolish friend’, Nawaz has reached out to Zardari at a number of occasions to seek counsel.
This time around, PM Nawaz is likely to discuss the terms of references (ToRs) put forward by the opposition and the ones suggested by the government. “It will be the second meeting of both the leaders on the Panama leaks issue,” the official said.

It is likely that the two leaders might hammer out a strategy to help fend off the opposition pressure on the PM and his government, he said. During his last visit to London, Nawaz had met Zardari at Churchill Hotel.
