Sharif says will speak truth after party, Pak PM reject remarks

Pakistan election 2008

Pakistan is anxious after India threatened to take former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharifs controversial statement on the 2008 Mumbai attacks to the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

"I can say with assurance that no one in Parliament has read the newspaper interview of the former premier of which a furore is being created". "We strongly believe that the interests of Pakistan are supreme to all personal and political interests", he said. Call them non-state actors, should we allow them to cross the border and kill 150 people in Mumbai?

Abbasi said he also held a meeting with Sharif after the NSC meeting and asserted that Sharif did not say what was reported in the media about the Mumbai attack. During the interview, Nawaz had said, "Militant organisations are active".

"The statements attributed to Sharif are factually incorrect and are being presented in a wrong light by the Indian media". Explain it to me.

It is pertinent to mention that the NSC statement did not name Nawaz while addressing the controversy around the "misleading" comments about Mumbai attack. "Why can't we complete the trial?" - a reference to the Mumbai attacks-related trials which have stalled in a Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court.

Sources privy to the development said a meeting of the National Security Committee, Pakistan's highest forum, headed by the PM and mandated to consider national security and foreign policy matters, is likely to take place within the next two days.

Rajoy then dismissed the Catalan government and its head and called a snap Catalan parliamentary election. Torra's appointment paves the way for a new government after months of political limbo.

"Party leaders should make statements based on facts", he asserted, saying nobody needs a certificate of patriotism from anyone.

The premier also said that a national truth and reconciliation commission can be made so the truth can come out.

After Prime minister's address, opposition walked out from the session as a protest.

The Prime Minister said it was the long-standing policy of Pakistan not to allow the use of its territory against any other country.

"Nawaz Sharif has rejected Monday's statement of the NSC which had condemned his controversial remarks and the entire nation is in a state of chaos since", he added. The army, along with Sharif's own former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Khan, blamed it on India accusing it of not cooperating with Pakistan on the 26/11 attacks and running a campaign to vilify Pakistan in front of the world.
