July 13, 2017  15:12
An emergency meeting of the federal cabinet on Thursday endorsed Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's decision to not step down as the premier even as clamour for his exit got louder in wake of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) report, reports the Dawn.

While addressing his cabinet in Islamabad, Sharif termed the JIT report a pack of "allegations and speculations", officials privy to the meeting told DawnNews.

Sharif announced that he will not resign as the prime minister on anyone's call, as the cabinet members suggested that he fight the legal battle to vindicate himself in the Panama Papers case.
