Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Saturday held a meeting with United States Central Command Commander General Joseph L Votel.

"Mr Zardari should be part of the dialogue process", he said.

Speaking to media after arriving in Quetta, Khaqan Abbasi thanked the governor and chief minister of Balochistan for welcoming him into the province.

He reduced Zardari's statement to a mere politically charged statement as General Elections 2018 are scheduled in the coming year.

The prime minister also said that "There is no clash between the institutions and the government, this news only exists in the media".

Abbasi added that he has had detailed discussions with Chief Minister Sanaullah Zehri.

Talking to the newsmen after chairing meetings with the provincial leadership on the law and order situation as well as the development projects, he said they had discussed the ways to further eliminate the threat of terror from the province besides ensuring the execution of development projects, committed by both the federal and provincial governments.

Abbasi said gas plants would be set up in every district headquarters of the province.

He added that the water shortage crisis in Balochistan would be overcome and tube wells would be run using solar power. PM Abbasi said that he was entirely sure that Balochistan would soon become the richest province of Pakistan.

The prime minister underscored that Pakistan had an important stake in peace and stability in Afghanistan as Pakistan has suffered the most due to conflict in that country, a statement from the PM's office said.

The premier also said that the health card scheme introduced by Nawaz Sharif in six districts of the province will be expanded across Balochistan and similarly, Benazir Income Support Program would also be expanded in the province.
