Former Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai on Saturday paid a visit to the ailing former three-time Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Shari at his Avenfield apartments in London.
Karzai addressed the media following the meeting with Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader and said his visit was to inquire after Nawaz Sharif’s health.
“It’s good to see him in good health,” said the former Afghan president. “During my visits to Pakistan and Nawaz visits to Afghanistan, I found him extremely kind. It is good to see him in good health,” he said.
Karzai has also met with PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif in London.
Nawaz had left for London on November 19 in an air ambulance to seek medical treatment, a month after he was released on bail from a seven-year prison sentence for corruption.
He was in the custody of National Accountability Bureau, when a sharp and radical drop in his platelet count from over 75,000 to just about 2,000 within 24 hours worried doctors last year.
Afghanistan and Pakistan political relations have been strained and increasingly acrimonious with Kabul blaming Islamabad for its sweeping insecurity.
