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

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

"The participants [of the NSC] 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", a statement issued by the PM Office had said.

On the formation of a national commission, Sharif asked, "Who led Pakistan towards isolation and has brought the country to a stage where the worldwide community is not ready to accept Pakistan's narrative. Why can't we complete the trial?" And the person who is asking this question has been labelled a traitor.

"At that time, this matter was turned into 'Dawn leaks'", he said. These media reports were incorrect.

"Do we want to let India use us for its own motives?"

The World Bank's Remittances and Migration Report is an effort by the World Bank to estimate migration and remittances numbers across the world, it said. Sharif's comments - in which Sharif implied he was removed from office by the Supreme Court past year for trying to end military support for anti-India militants - has led to an uproar in Pakistan, where criticising the military is considered a "red line" that can not be crossed.

"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.

"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.

He said even allies of the government are not backing it over the issue.

Nawaz's remarks in addition to sparking a strong reaction from the opposition and media, also sent the PML-N scrambling in attempts to explain his remarks.

Addressing a presser in Lahore, Fawad said that verdict on Nawaz Sharif's corruption allegations is about to announced soon; therefore, the former premier is trying to involve foreign powers to take the spotlight away from the cases.

Separately PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry said the former premier does not respect the state or institutions. "India wasn't interested in a transparent investigation", he said.
