'Worrisome, frightening' NSC statement based on misunderstanding: Nawaz

'Worrisome, frightening' NSC statement based on misunderstanding: Nawaz

Pakistan's ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday defended his recent remarks about the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, saying he will speak the truth no matter what the consequences are.

Mr Sharif had publicly acknowledged in an interview that militant organisations are active in Pakistan and questioned the policy to allow the "non-state actors" to cross the border and "kill" people in Mumbai. "He told me that he has not made such comments and his words have been misrepresented and taken out of context", Abbasi was quoted by Pakistan's Daily Times, as saying. He said he did not say anything wrong although his spokesperson said the former PM, who was disqualified in July previous year on charges of corruption, said his statement was grossly misinterpreted.

In its annual report, the statement said that the World Bank estimates bilateral remittances between countries using the methodology summarised in the World Bank Working Paper 102 South-South migration and remittances by the authors of the report.

PM Abbasi, on the floor of the house on Tuesday, said: "Whatever was said during that interview and whatever was written by the reporter was misinterpreted by the Indian media in order to serve India's own purposes".

"We will have to find out who is responsible for laying the foundation of terrorism in the Country", he said.

The last outbreak, which occurred in the northern Bas Uele province, reported eight cases with four deaths, according to the CDC . The 2014-15 outbreak was the largest, mainly affecting three countries in west Africa: Guinea , Liberia and Sierra Leone .

While earlier today, former premier Nawaz Sharif turned down the statement released by National Security Committee (NSC) yesterday in the aftermath of his controversial remarks about the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

Cyril Almeida further said that he was conveyed a plan to meet the former premier at the airport for the interview but he did not go to the airport as the interview was conducted at another place.

Branding Nawaz Sharif's remark as an "irresponsible", senators demanded that he apologise to the nation and retract his statement, Dawn reported.

"Former president Pervez Musharraf, former interior minister Rehman Malik and former National Security Adviser Major-General (retd) Mehmood Durrani had already confirmed [what I said]", he added. He claimed that the government would follow through "even if it had a second left [in the completion of its term]".
