Nawaz rejects NSC's declaration, demands National Commission to unearth facts

Sharif's statement about Mumbai attack was 'misreported': Pak PM

Nawaz, in a informal discussion with reporters at the accountability court today, reiterated his stance on the remarks regarding the Mumbai attacks made during an exclusive interview with Dawn.

His comments stirred a controversy, prompting the National Security Committee (NSC) - Pakistan's top civil-military body - to call a high-level meeting.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Tuesday slammed the former premier Nawaz Sharif over his recent statement on 2008 Mumbai attacks. "The participants unanimously rejected the allegations and condemned the fallacious assertions", it said. The participants observed that it was very unfortunate that the opinion arising out of either misconceptions or grievances was being presented in disregard of concrete facts and realities.

The statement was a rare rebuke of Sharif by a government run by his own party, highlighting political tension in the run-up to a general election expected in July.

Chinese plane windshield pops out mid-flight
A separate report said the aircraft had accumulated 19,912 flight hours since entering service at Sichuan Airlines in July 2011. The cause of the break in the right windshield of the cockpit is yet to be ascertained as investigations are underway.

Mr Sharif said he will "speak the truth no matter what the consequences are".

Opposition leader Imran Khan demanded that Sharif be put on trial. "This policy was followed when Nawaz Sharif was prime minister, when the PPP was in power, and when Musharraf was president", he asserted.

The Supreme Court disqualified three-time prime minister Sharif from office in July past year over unreported sources of monthly income of less than US$3,000 (RM11,900) from a United Arab Emirates company, a salary he denied ever receiving. Ten gunmen spent three days spraying bullets and throwing grenades around landmarks.

The meeting recalled that was not Pakistan, but India that has delayed the finalisation of the case. Pakistan admitted the attacks were planned on its soil but denied any official involvement, and did not confirm the gunmen had set sail from Karachi.

In a rare moment of unity, lawmakers from different parties in the Sindh Assembly moved resolutions on Monday condemning Nawaz's interview regarding the Mumbai attack and asked him to tender an apology. He said there should only be one constitutional government.

"Nawaz is responsible for bringing the country to the stage where it is at", Chaudhry said while speaking to Geo News.

"We have isolated ourselves".

"Militant organizations are active". Explain it to me.

PM Abbasi negated the term "traitor" for Nawaz Sharif adding that "nobody needs a certificate of patriotism from anyone".

According to report, several senators belonging to the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl - an ally of the ruling PML-N -also castigated Sharif's remark, underscoring he had endorsed the "enemy's" narrative.

Any new USA sanctions on Iran violate resolution 2231
Zarif is heading a high-ranking political-economic delegation during his visit to China. Iran says as far as it's concerned the nuclear deal is not yet dead.

"Even at that time, the same things ─ getting our house in order ─ were being discussed in an NSC meeting", he pointed out, referring to a meeting in which, Dawn had reported, the civilian government had informed the military leadership of Pakistan's growing worldwide isolation and sought consensus on several key actions by the state.
