ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Thursday said that the government would take decision regarding Nato supply in light of the recommendations of the Parliamentary Committee on National Security.
Defence Committee of the Cabinet had decided to stop the Nato supply following the attack on Pakistani checkpost on Pak-Afghan border, the minister informed media after addressing a ceremony.
The ceremony was held to pay tributes to security personnel who embraced martyrdom and suffered disabilities in war against terrorism.
“We have left the matter to the Parliamentary committee, which is led by Senator Raza Rabbani, and the government will implement its recommendations, whatever these will be,” the minister said.
Malik said, as a result of the unmatched sacrifices rendered by our Army, Frontier Corps, Frontier Constabulary and Police in war against terror and the militants have been defeated in Swat and Malakand divisions.
Replying to a question, the minister said he would visit the police-pickets set up at different roads of the capital and assured all the unnecessary check-posts would be removed to ensure smooth flow of traffic.
Justifying the police-pickets at the federal capital, Rehman Malik said law enforcement agencies were alerted on daily basis and security is tightened accordingly to avoid any untoward incident.
Commenting on the G-11 firing incident in which an Assistant Sub-Inspector was killed, he said an inquiry has been ordered to probe the episode.
However, the minister was of the view that it could be a result of any personal enmity.
