Sharif, also questioned why the trial into the Mumbai attacks was stalled at a Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court.

Criticising the country's foreign policy, Sharif had added: "We have isolated ourselves". He indicated that his country should look into why its narrative that it had been fighting terrorism had not been accepted by the worldwide community "despite sacrifices". Afghanistan's narrative is being accepted, but ours is not.

"Explain it to me", he asked, in a clear reference to the Mumbai killings blamed on 10 Pakistani terrorists.

Sharif, 68, was disqualified by the Supreme Court for not being "honest and righteous" as he failed to declare in 2013 a salary he got from the company of his son in the UAE.
