LAHORE - As part of efforts by some Western countries to woo Pakistan's political leadership to turn soft on President Pervez Musharraf, former British High Commissioner in Pakistan Mark Lyall Grant had an important meeting with PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif at latter's Raiwind residence on Wednesday. Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif was also present on the occasion. As per sources in the PML-N, the two sides discussed matters relating to anticipated impeachment of President Musharraf, war on terror and judges reinstatement. Mark Lyall Grant, currently Director General Political Directorate, Foreign and Commonwealth Office reportedly negotiated the possibility of providing safe passage to Musharraf, who is likely to be served impeachment notice by the ruling alliance soon. Nawaz apprised Grant of the growing anti-Musharraf sentiments among the people and the resentment against him in the national and four provincial assemblies. The PML-N Quaid also informed the foreign diplomat about the resolutions passed against Musharraf by three provincial assemblies with overwhelming majority asking him either to seek vote of confidence from his Electoral College or face impeachment. He further told Grant that under the given situation it was better for Musharraf to resign immediately to avoid court cases he would have to face after the impeachment. Mark Grant, in turn, told PML-N leaders that Britain wanted to see strong democratic institutions in Pakistan and had complete faith in country's political leadership. He also expressed the desire to further strengthen ties with the people of Pakistan instead of individuals.
