Chairman of the Parliament’s Special Committee on National Security Senator Mian Raza Rabbani, Thursday, made it clear that Pakistan being a sovereign country would not pay heed to the US demand for military operation in North Waziristan.

“Pakistan would itself decide when and where the military operation was imperative”, he told the media persons shortly after chairing a meeting of the committee, which also had detailed input on the issues relating to the national security from DG ISI Lt Gen Ahmed Shuja Pasha at theparliament House.

Other members of the committee who participated in the meeting were Amir of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) Maulana Fazlur Rehman, MNAs Haider Abbas Rizvi, Aftab Ahmed Khan Sherpao, Senators Ishaq Dar, Abdur Rahim Mandokhel, Leader of Opposition in the Senate Wasim Sajjad and Secretary Defence Lt Gen (R) Syed Athar Ali.

Interior Minister Rehman Malik also briefed the committee about the prevailing law and order situation in the country. “It was a detailed briefing that covered all the important national issues,” Mian Raza rabbani said, advising the political leaders to refrain from criticism in order to maintain the `national consensus’ as it was imperative to keep the national interests supreme.

“The issue of missing persons is a serious matter and the government will ensure their recovery,” he said. He said that the committee had decided to seek reports from ministries of Interior, Defence and Foreign Affairs about implementation status on the recommendations of the parliamentary body.

Rabbani said the committee would hold regular meetings after August 2 to prepare new recommendations in the light of earlier suggestions. He said the body would take briefing from ministries of Interior, Defence and Foreign Affairs on August 2, 3 and 4 respectively.
