The prime minister said the cable would be shared with lawmakers during an in-camera session of the parliament. However, he noted that the name of the country that “threatened” Pakistan could not be disclosed due to national security laws.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Senator Faisal Javed Khan said that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s address to the nation, which was set to be broadcasted today, had been postponed. He confirmed the news on Twitter, without giving further details.
