Former Afghan president Hamid Karzai meets ailing Nawaz Sharif in London

ANI  |  Europe 

Former Afghanistan president Hamid Karzai met ailing Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif at his Avenfield apartments in London on Saturday.

He was received by two sons of the former prime minister - Hassan and Hussain Nawaz - upon his arrival at their swanky British address, Express Tribune reported.

Addressing the media following the meeting, Karzai said he visited the three-time Pakistani premier to inquire after his health.

"It's good to see him in good health," said the former Afghan president, who was accompanied by PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif at the presser.

"During my visits to Pakistan and Mian Sahib's (Nawaz) visits to Afghanistan, I found him extremely kind ... it is good to see him in good health," Karzai added.

Nawaz had left for London on November 19 in an air ambulance to seek medical treatment, a month after he was released on bail from a seven-year prison sentence for corruption.

He was in the custody of National Accountability Bureau (NAB), when a sharp and radical drop in his platelet count from over 75,000 to just about 2,000 within 24 hours worried doctors last year.
