He said only agents of imperialistic forces could think to sabotage the OIC conference.

Regarding the convening of the National Assembly (NA) session for a no-confidence motion against the Prime Minister, the minister said the Speaker NA could not kill the motion rather he has authority to extend the session keeping in view the current situation.

However, he said that he did not know when the Speaker would summon the National Assembly session.

Sheikh Rasheed said the Interior Ministry would provide full security and protection to both rallies of March 25 and March 27.

He said that he has directed the Commissioner and Deputy Commission Islamabad to take on board both the parties and select separate venues for holding their rallies. The imperialistic forces were against the independent foreign policy of Pakistan given by Imran Khan and hatching conspiracies, he added. However, he warned that if any untoward incident happened at the rally, cases would be registered against their leadership, he added.
