ISLAMABAD – The Adviser to Pakistani premier over Foreign Affairs and Security, Sartaj Aziz, has finally corrected his words previously considered to be backstabbing Army Chief General Raheel Sharif during his visit to US.
Representative of Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) informed PakistanTribe‘s correspondent that Sartaj Aziz called on Afghanistan’s National Security Adviser Hanif Itmar on Thursday and clarified the context of his interview with Britain’s news outlet.
Sartaj told his Afghan counterpart that his interview was in historical context but wrongly taken by others. “Pakistan believes in acting against all terrorists and militant groups without keeping any difference,” Sartaj said.
MoFA’s representative also informed that Sartaj Aziz reiterated to work closely with Afghanistan authorities to meet all challenges. “Our determination against terrorism is evident from Operation Zarb-e-Azb. This determination cannot be shattered by any mean,” he added.
However, when PakistanTribe‘s correspondent inquired that whether there was a demand of personal clarification from any internal or external power center, MoFA’s representative maintained “Foreign Office had already gave a clarification very next day of the interview. Obviously out context statements create a lot of confusions and misunderstandings between stakeholders.”
