On September 18, the National Assembly had approved the formation of a parliamentary committee.

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has assured the house that the committee will be fully authorised to accomplish these objectives.

The PTI has nothing to hide as it believes in strengthening democratic norms and values, he said. “Transparency will not be compromised under any circumstances.”
