ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif reportedly assured Chief of the Army Staff, General Qamar Javed Bajwa in a meeting convened on Thursday night to have a revised notification over Dawn Leaks probe report issued.
Army chief called on the premier at Prime Minister House to deliberate over Dawn Leaks probe report, according to the sources.
Reportedly, PM Nawaz was paid a visit to by Minister for the Interior, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Friday after his meeting with General Bajwa last night. The premier instructed the federal minister regarding the revised notification that is to be issued.
The Prime Minister assured General Bajwa to address reservations of Pakistan Army over Dawn Leaks probe.
The meeting took place last night in Prime Minister House.
Last week, the military rejected the federal government’s notification on Dawn leaks inquiry, stating that it is incomplete and not in line with the recommendations made by the inquiry board.
“Notification on Dawn Leak is incomplete and not in line with recommendations by the Inquiry Board. Notification is rejected,” Director General, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor tweeted.
The tweet came minutes after the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) government released a notification stating that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had approved the recommendations of the Dawn Leak inquiry committee. As per notification, the premier removed Tariq Fatemi as Advisor on Foreign Affairs and ordered action against Principal Information Officer Tehsin Rao.
