The ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has succeeded in appeasing the angry coalition Muslim League (Q).
Prime Minister Imran Khan has set up a committee of party leaders headed by Defense Minister Pervez Khattak, aimed at angry government unions (MQM) Pakistan, PML-Q and Balochistan National Party (BNP) Mengal. Concerns had to be overcome.
The PTI delegation, which included senior leaders Jahangir Tareen, Chief Minister Punjab Usman Bazdar and Arbab Shahzad, met with the PML-Q delegation.
The delegation of the PML-Q included Federal Minister Tariq Bashir Cheema, Member of the National Assembly Chaudhry Moonis Elahi.
Talking to the media after the meeting, Tariq Bashir Cheema said that he thanked Pervaiz Khattak and Jahangir Tareen for 'understanding our concerns'.
"When you live in the same house, there may be differences of opinion," he said.
In response to a question, Bashir Cheema said that the PML-Q had some 'demands' and expressed its hope that it would be fulfilled soon.
When asked what the demands were, Tariq Bashir Cheema said he was concerned with the 'development process'.
Defense Minister Pervez Khattak told reporters that this was not the first meeting between the sides.
He said that the parties were allies in the past and will remain allies in the future.
Pervez Khattak said, "Some people have misunderstood the meeting and we will work together for five years under the current government".
On the occasion, Jahangir Tareen denied that the PTI government was facing any problem.
"I am sure that the MQM Pakistan legislators will return to the cabinet as they are in talks," he said.
