ISLAMADAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday told a meeting that he would neither tender resignation nor call mid-term elections.

The meeting, attended by Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif and Interior Minister Nisar Ali Khan, decided not to stop the PTI and PAT marchers from entering Red Zone.

The meeting discussed a strategy to defuse the situation in the federal capital, which had arisen due to the sit-ins staged by the PTI and PAT. There was a general agreement in the meeting to defuse the political tensions through "give and take" while remaining within the ambit of constitution and law.

The PM reportedly told the meeting that the government has opened political dialogue with both PAT and PTI to call off their protest rallies, but their respective leaderships have refused to talk until date.

Nawaz has in principle decided not to bow out under the pressure of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) protests.

According to media reports, he expressed his resolve to defuse the prevailing political crisis in a democratic way, during a meeting with party leaders at the PM's House on Tuesday."I will neither tender resignation nor will call mid-term elections," media reported Nawaz as saying.
