Pakistan PM Shehbaz Sharif Faces Major Embarrassment, Vladimir Putin Laughs During Meeting At SCO Summit

World


Shehbaz Sharif met Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the SCO summit in Uzbekistan.

In major embarrassment, Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s failed attempt to put on his headphone evoked a laugh from Russian President Vladimir Putin during their meeting yesterday on the sidelines of a regional summit in Uzbekistan.

The device was seen falling off Mr Sharif’s ears during their talks in Samarkand where the 22nd summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) is underway. This triggered an eventual and audible laugh from Putin as he waited for the Pakistan premier to fix his headphone.

Mr Sharif faced criticism on social media with the workers of former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s party claiming the incident was a major embarrassment for the country at an international level.

This is the first in-person summit of the SCO in the two years, shaking off Covid fears. It is being attended by the leaders of eight member nations including Prime Minister Narendra Modi who reached Samarkand last night.
