LAHORE: Foreign Minister Khwaja Asif met former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Saturday for ‘directions’ ahead of his tour to three countries where he is expected to discuss America’s new policy regarding Afghanistan and South Asia.

According to a Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader, Mr Asif is likely to leave for China today (Sunday) and his next stop will be Russia and then Turkey.

During a one-on-one meeting with Mr Sharif at his Jati Umra residence, Mr Asif, who has less than a month’s experience of running the foreign ministry, briefed the former premier about his planned three-country visit.
