Islamabad: The National Security Committee (NSC) meeting on Monday termed ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s statement about the 2008 Mumbai attacks as “incorrect and misleading”, said an official communique released on Monday.
In a one-point agenda meeting pertaining to the remarks made by Nawaz, multiple members of the Pakistan Army, Air Force, the Naval Chief, National Security Adviser (NSA) Nasser Khan Janjuga, Director-General Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Naveed Mukhtar and Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa were present.
The NCS concluded over the following points:
* Nawaz Sharif’s statement termed as “incorrect and misleading”.
* The former premier’s statement based on either misconceptions or grievances, disregard of concrete facts and realities.
*The participants unanimously rejected the allegations and condemned the fallacious assertions.
* India held responsible for delay in 2008 Mumbai Attacks inquiry.
* India denied access to the principal accused, Ajmal Qasab, and his extraordinarily hurried execution became the core impediment in the finalisation of the trial
