The Cabinet accorded approval to the draft bill prepared by the Ministry of Law and Justice for the Establishment of National Commission on Human Rights (NCHR). The formation of NCHR would not only help in combating human rights violations in Pakistan but also fulfill international obligations. Under the UN General Assembly Resolution, member states were required to establish independent Human Right Institutions and in this connection bill would be tabled in the Parliament soon. The Cabinet also approved the ordinance moved by the Ministry of Law and Justice to undo the amendments made in the Legal Practioners Act 1973 by ex-President Pervez Musharraf on November 3, 2007.

The Prime Minister urged all the ministers to proactively promote the schemes and actions of the government pertaining to their respective areas. In this connection, he also asked them to ensure maximum facilities to the information officers attached with the ministries so that they could effectively supplement the government's promotional efforts.   The Cabinet approved the summary moved by the Ministry of Defence for signing of Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Nigeria in the field of Defence Cooperation. The MOU will pave the way for broad-based military and defence cooperation between the two countries.
