PM Abbasi, CM Shahbaz meet Nawaz Sharif

Sharif's statement about Mumbai attack was 'misreported': Pak PM Sharif's moment of truth

He stresses "After all, it was Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who, resisting all pressures, took the most important and most hard decision on national security in Pakistan's history by making the country a nuclear power in May 1998".

Holding informal talk with media representatives at Accountability Court in Islamabad, Nawaz Sharif said PTI neither had any role nor any ideology.

The trio has met for the first time since Nawaz's explosive interview with a local newspaper. "Militant organisations are active".

"Call them non-state actors, should we allow them to cross the border and kill over 150 people in Mumbai? Explain it to me", he had said, in a clear reference to the Mumbai killings blamed on 10 Pakistani terrorists. Why can't we complete the trial."I mean raised question on the timing of the revelation, and said Sharif was in power for four years and did not speak out a word about the Mumbai attacks".

Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has mustered enough courage to admit in public about Pakistan's involvement in the 26/11 attacks.

"The participants unanimously rejected the allegations and condemned the fallacious assertions", the office said, referring to military and civilian leaders.

"By his irresponsible act and misstatement, he has caused great harm to the sovereignty, integrity and solidarity of Pakistan", it said and demanded registration of a treason case against him. "A decision should be made about who is a patriot and who is a traitor", he added. "Who is responsible for bringing the country to its present state?" he asked. "Are those who tore apart the country and the Constitution patriots?" The political turmoil over Sharif's candid admission will further isolate Pakistan internationally over terrorism issue.

However Sharif defended his defended his remarks asking, "What did I say that was wrong in the interview?" "Khawaja Asif should be asked what the world would say about Pakistan when he would go overseas to represent the country", he added.

On Tuesday, after his appearance at the accountability court where he is being tried for corruption, the former three-time Prime Minister broke his silence over his altercation with the Pakistani army in the 2016 NSC huddle.

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 the Inter-Services Intelligence and Military Intelligence. Sharif's daughter and party spokesperson, Maryam Nawaz Sharif, later clarified, "PML-N would like to set the record straight on the interview of PML-N Quaid carried yesterday by DAWN".
