Sharif's Mumbai attack statement 'incorrect, misleading': Pakistan civil-military brass

Nawaz Sharif has revealed in an interview that those who attacked hotel in Mumbai were from Pakistan

The Mumbai attacks-related trials are stalled in a Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court.

"Pakistan has tried to cooperate with India in the case from the start".

"The PML-N would like to set the record straight on the interview of PML-N supreme leader Nawaz Sharif carried Saturday by Dawn", he said in a statement.

In a media interview on Friday, Mr. Sharif for the first time questioned Pakistan's policy of allowing the "non-state actors" to cross the border and "kill" people in Mumbai. Explain it to me. "Why can't we complete the trial?" he had told Dawn newspaper.

Trump, who is more than 15 months into his term of office, hasn't yet nominated a replacement. He said recommendations issued by the since-disbanded U.S.

Will his latest remarks worsen the tussle even further between the ruling PML-N and the army? He also said even countries like China and Russian Federation, with which Pakistan has close relations, were questioning its struggle.

They believe that the announcement by the ISPR chief through social media indicates that the military authorities have made a decision to seriously take up the issue and that they want Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi's stance over the matter. The army has consistently denied supporting terrorists, though in the past some Pakistani officials have admitted to alleged involvement in the Mumbai attacks.

He said misunderstandings are removed in the light of the facts.

Claiming that he is calling from Doda, Zargar said that India arrested Ajmal Qasab from Nepal and to defame Pakistan, he was labeled as Mumbai attack mastermind and subsequently hanged.

Winnipeg Jets vs. Vegas Golden Knights series preview
The old Jets last played a Game 7 in 1992, losing to Vancouver before bolting for Phoenix to become the Coyotes four years later. Vegas' players have been penalized only 3.4 times per game in total this season, and 4.7 per game over their last ten outings.

Leading opposition leader and cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan said that Sharif was speaking the language of (Indian Prime Minister) Narendra Modi and cooperating against enemies of Pakistan to harm the country.

Presided over by Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, the meeting was attended by top Cabinet ministers, Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee Gen Zubair Hayat, the three services chiefs, the director generals of Inter-Services Intelligence and Military Intelligence.

"The meeting unanimously termed remarks (by Sharif) incorrect and misleading", said a statement issued after the 22nd NSC meeting at the Prime Minister's House.

Sharif also challenged his detractors to form a "national commission" to look into his statement, saying that the same authority should also bring together those individuals who were calling him a traitor so that the people of Pakistan could see who was right and who was wrong. "Despite giving sacrifices, our narrative is not being accepted", Sharif said.

Drones That Monitor Mosquito Populations To Be Tested In US
Almost 150 applications were submitted, and Memphis is now one of 10 cities taking part in this two-year nationwide study. The Native American tribe will test using drones to inspect crops, livestock herds, and infrastructure.

Unlikely though it may be, will Pakistan's civil society, whatever it is worth, stand up and endorse what Nawaz Sharif finally said in his interview, "These games have gone on for too long". It also goes against the endeavours of his brother Shahbaz Sharif, the current PML (N) president and the powerful chief minister of Punjab, to calm the situation arising out of the interview.
