PML-N spokesman Marriyum Aurangzeb said Nawaz's plane would stop in Qatar to refuel. She said the medical team would also be changed.

& # 39; Praying for Nawaz's recovery & # 39;
Shortly after Nawaz left, Prime Minister Imran Khan's assistant, Firdous Ashiq Awan, wished Nawaz a "speedy recovery so he can return and face [the courts]".
in a cheep, she said: "[We are] praying for God to grant a full recovery to Nawaz Sharif. We are praying for your health and [for his] prompt recovery so he can return and face the law.

Minister of Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry also reacted to Nawaz's departure and said that the "journey of & # 39; why they expelled me & # 39; a & # 39; expel me for the love of God & # 39; now is nearing its end".
