ISLAMABAD: An in-camera session of the Parliamentary Committee on National Security (PCNS) has been convened on Wednesday at 3pm, sources told Geo News.

The sources said that military leadership will brief the lawmakers on the latest security situation in the country.

The sources added that the session will take place at the Prime Minister’s Office instead of the Parliament House, while National Assembly Speaker Raja Pervez Ashraf will chair the session.

The session will be given a briefing on ongoing talks with the banned outfit Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), the publication reported.

A local media outlet, citing sources, reported the PCNS session is being summoned after the PPP raised objections to the secrecy of the government’s ongoing talks with the banned TTP.
