NSC meeting on audio leaks postponed, PM to address press conference

A meeting of the National Security Committee (NSC) scheduled for Wednesday has been postponed indefinitely.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif is set to address a press conference Tuesday evening.

Shehbaz Sharif had called the NSC meeting a day after audio clips, purportedly recording of the conversations inside the Prime Minister’s House surfaced on social media. PTI’s Fawad Chaudhry claimed that at least 8 GB of data had been made available on the darknet.

The NSC is the highest national security body in Pakistan and the chiefs of armed forces, as well as the director-general of the ISI, are its members.

Some of the federal ministers are also part of the meeting.

It was set to meet immediately after a cabinet meeting on Wednesday.

However, the NSC meeting has been postponed now, though the cabinet meeting will go ahead as planned.

Meanwhile, the prime minister has decided to hold a press conference Tuesday evening.

He will speak about financial issues faced by the country and his recent UN visit.
