Opposition Leader in the National Assembly and PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif has said the present opposition is the most responsible in the history of the country.

Shehbaz made these remarks during a video conference with British High Commissioner to Pakistan Christian Turner where the two discussed various issues of mutual interest.

Speaking about the current political atmosphere in the country, Shehbaz said the present opposition was the most responsible one in the country’s history and was playing a constructive role.

“The welfare of the people should be the government’s top priority. The current economic challenges are worrisome but the opposition will continue to fulfill its constitutional responsibility,” the PML-N leader remarked.

Shehbaz added that his party [PML-N] successfully defeated the monster of terrorism, solved the energy crisis. “This is the time to move forward, not confront one another,” he said.

Turner praised Shehbaz's performance and said that the Department for International Development (DFID) and British assistance projects were completed [during PML-N's tenure].

He added that despite the coronavirus pandemic, the UK is committed about its development programmes in Pakistan and would continue to work towards common development goals.
