ISLAMABAD - Two months after flying abroad for medical treatment, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif yesterday resumed working in Islamabad ahead of an important National Security Committee meeting today (Friday).

Sharif, along with his family, travelled by helicopter from his Jati Umrah residence to Lahore airport and then flew to Islamabad by special plane.

The Prime Minister had undergone a heart surgery in London in May and returned to Lahore this month after permission from his doctors. Since his arrival on July 9 from London, the premier was running official affairs of the country through a camp office in Lahore.

Prime Minister Sharif was due to arrive in Islamabad on July 18 but delayed his plans after developing an infection in his leg.

PM’s daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif was the first to announce his arrival. “Prime Minister at work during the flight to Isb (Islamabad). Just arrived,” she tweeted sharing a picture of his father examining a file inside the plane.

In a second tweet, she said Prime Minister Sharif’s leg wound “hasn’t completely healed yet and that it may take a few more days. Your duas (prayers) did miracles.”

Later, Maryam Nawaz Sharif said the Prime Minister went straight to his office after landing in Islamabad. A picture was also shared where the premier was seen meeting officials in his office.

Prime Minister Sharif has convened a meeting of the NSC in Islamabad today (July 22) to review the security situation in the country.

The Prime Minister will preside over the NSC meeting which will also be attended by Defence Minister, Finance Minister, Minister of Interior, Information Minister, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee, heads of armed forces, and intelligence chiefs among others.

The meeting will review national security issues and regional situation. Matters related to the National Action Plan, operation Zarb-e-Azb, and Karachi operation would also come under discussion.

Before his arrival in Islamabad, there were speculations the PM might fly back to the United Kingdom for medical check-up and return to the capital city a bit later.
