LONDON – Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif confirmed on Friday that the condition of his wife, Begum Kulsoom, is slightly better but hastened to add that she was not completely out of danger.

In an interview to British state-run media on Friday, the former premier regretted that had he visited his wife earlier, he would at least have been able to find her conscious.

Sharif, who landed in London last Thursday, requested for prayers for his cancer-suffering wife.

The former first lady was admitted to Harley Street Clinic on June 14 after suffering a cardiac arrest and has been on ventilator since. She had been undergoing treatment for Lymphoma during the past few months.

Nawaz and his daughter, Maryam, are moving back and forth between the British capital city and Pakistani capital city to attend the accountability court proceedings.

Hussain Nawaz, the former premier’s son, also confirmed that his mother’s condition has improved compared to last week.

However, Maryam Nawaz told newsmen yesterday that her mother’s condition remained critical.

The decision to remove the life support for Kulsoom has not been made yet.
