Pakistan PM Imran Khan summons NSC meeting ahead of no confidence vote

The development comes a day after the premier shared a letter – purportedly showing evidence of a "foreign conspiracy" to oust his government – with his cabinet members in a hurriedly called meeting, which was not attended by PTI’s two major allies – Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) and Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) – despite being invited.

Pakistan’s embattled Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday summoned a meeting of the National Security Committee (NSC), the highest forum for discussion on security issues, a day after he effectively lost majority in Parliament after a key partner of the ruling coalition joined the ranks of the Opposition which had tabled a no-confidence motion against his government.

The NSC meeting will be held at the Prime Minister’s House, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry tweeted.

The NSC is chaired by the Prime Minister and attended by services chiefs, key ministers, national security adviser and top intelligence officials.
