Babar was quoted as saying that the main purpose of meeting Nawaz Sharif is to congratulate him on coalition government and to discuss the current political situation.

The sources claimed that the PPP and the PML-N are closer to each other but there are some issues regarding the coalition government. Bilawal was there in the oath-taking ceremony as a guest but he did not take oath as foreign minister.

The sources said meeting aimed at addressing those issues first.

The sources said that the PPP chairman wanted to discuss major issues with Nawaz Sharif for an amicable solution as he wanted ANP, BNP (Mengal) and Moshin Dawar in the cabinet.

They said that if these issues are addresses then Bilawal may take oath as a foreign minister.
