Gilani wished Bilawal success in his future pursuits,
said a brief statement issued by the premier's office.
He also discussed the post-flood situation and
rehabilitation plans for the flood victims with Bilawal.
Bilawal, who recently graduated in history from the
prestigious Christ College at Oxford University, had said in
July that he had no immediate plans to enter politics.
Dismissing media reports that he would launch his
political career, Bilawal said he intended to continue his
academic and political education and was looking at the
possibility of studying law like his grandfather, late
President Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.
Bilawal was made chairman of the PPP after his mother,
former premier Benazir Bhutto, was assassinated by a suicide
bomber in 2007.
Under Pakistani laws, he will be eligible to contest
elections when he turns 25.
