LAHORE - All is set for another 'photo shoot meeting between President Asif Ali Zardari and PML-N Quaid Mian Nawaz Sharif scheduled at a dinner reception being hosted in honour of Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan at President House today (Monday). Although eyes are set on the Zardari-Nawaz parleys hoping for a meaningful dialogue under the current crumbling situation of the country on all fronts, yet the meeting is going to be just a political show with no breakthrough ending up with futile statements such as PPP would sooner or later decide the future of NRO, KLB, Musharraf trial, 17th Amendment, 58(2)b, CoD, SWA operation, terrorism and economic crisis, while PML-N would call upon the PPP to fulfil promises at the earliest. It is reportedly because of the immense pressure by Friends of Pakistan, especially America and Saudi Arabia, that led to the meeting of the two enemy-turned-brother-turned-enemy leaders of the country to open new chapter of relations. The aim is to ensure that two heavyweight political parties are single-minded to combat the monster of terrorism, it has been reliably learnt. The meeting is going to be the second one between President Zardari and Mian Nawaz Sharif in the current year. Earlier, Zardari and his sizeable entourage visited the two brother leaders in Raiwind in July earlier this year. The Raiwind meeting remained futile as it ended without any conclusion with regard to conflicting issues between the two parties. Rounds of talks were held with and without aides between the leaders of two major parliamentary parties for hours during the Raiwind meeting. The outcome of the meeting could have been made public and released to press but the two leaders preferred to release a formal joint communiquT giving the impression as if two sovereigns had met. The joint communiquT revealed no breakthrough, as the two leaders failed to agree to a timetable to repeal the 17th Amendment and implement the Charter of Democracy (CoD). A senior leader of PML-N told TheNation that Nawaz Sharif wasnt really interested in meeting but had opted for it upon intense American and Saudi pressure and on the condition that Zardari would show seriousness to resolve all the pending disputed matters instead of getting NRO approved from the Parliament. The PML-N leader further said that Nawaz Sharif knew Zardari would give some mental somersaults with another round of promises, smiles and agreements. But sometime for political expediency, you have to do something under compulsion, he added. Another party stalwart said the PML-N think tanks were completely hopeless about any major positive outcome of the session, being held amid estranged relations between the two parties. He said the NRO would be centre of talks during the meeting and Nawaz would recommend that the president and all others who had benefited from the NRO should get themselves cleared through the due process of law in order to earn respect and erase stigma of exploiting the universally condemned law. But everybody knows Zardari would never welcome the suggestion, he added. He said the meeting would never yield results since Zardari seemed in no mood to shed his powers but Nawaz would urge him to transfer his powers to Parliament for the sake of democracy with regard to decision-making. Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Ch Nisar Ali Khan who visited Nawaz at his residence in Raiwind to prepare the agenda of the Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) Quaids meeting with the President looked pessimist about the outcome of the meeting. He hoped that President Zardaris dinner meeting with Nawaz Sharif should lead to some important decisions and not just be a political show signifying nothing. PML-N veteran leader Raja Zafar-ul-Haq was also unable to express his feelings about the upshot of Nawaz-Zardari meeting. He told TheNation on telephone that he was not in a position to comment over the fate of the meeting.
