“Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates enjoy close and fraternal ties based on common faith and traditions, shared history and heritage; deep-rooted cultural affinities, geographic proximity and identity of views on several regional and global issues.

Political unrest is likely to approach, as Faisal Vawda noted that PTI will confront formidable obstacles.

Pakistan cannot support any anarchist party. According to Vawda, PTI must change into PTI-P in the same way as MQM becomes MQM-P.

In his critique of the PTI’s present political approach, he implied that the organization’s latest moves and catchphrases are the result of trust established by legal rulings. According to Vawda, PTI is now in a precarious position because these activities have put them over the constitutional line.

“PTI has been shouting anti-institutional slogans ten times ahead of the court order; they should be prepared for the bulldozer now,” Vawda remarked.

Furthermore, according to Vawda, it is improbable that PTI’s founder will be released from prison. Instead, PTI’s future will be determined by government policies and internal calculations.

He said that the intelligence to overthrow the government is within the Pakistan Democratic Movement II (PDM-2).

Furthermore, the senator charged that the government was misrepresenting PTI and the institutions and deliberately causing uncertainty.

He predicted that the political atmosphere would intensify and that the administration might not abide by the rulings of the Supreme Court, contributing to the situation’s complexity.
