'Pak 'Troikas' trio of meetings within a week suggests something "significant" being planned'
Islamabad, July 8 (ANI): Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari met Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and Chief of the Army Staff General Ashfaq Kayani for the third time in less than a week here on Tuesday, fanning speculations that the troika is planning something significant.
A statement issued by the Presidency after the meeting said that the leaders discussed internal and external threats facing the country, but analysts believe it is something else which has forced the trio to meet thrice in seven days.
"Frequent meetings between the President, Prime Minister and Army Chief must be meaningful and it would be a folly to think that matters concerning return of internally displaced persons were discussed in three meetings held in one single week. In the absence of any imminent external threat, it could be anything, but must be significant," The Dawn quoted an analyst, as saying.
In the meantime, the Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC) General Tariq Majeed also met Zardari on Tuesday, which has added to speculations regarding the series of top level meetings.(ANI)
