ISLAMABAD: The spokesman of the Prime Minister’s Office has strongly rejected the story published in the Daily Dawn of October 6, 2016, regarding purported deliberations in a meeting on security issues.

The spokesman has termed contents of the story not only speculative but misleading and factually incorrect. “It is an amalgamation of fiction and fabrication. The fact that the report itself states that none of the attributed statements were confirmed by the individuals mentioned in the story clearly makes it an example of irresponsible reporting.”

Dispelling the impression created by the newspaper, the spokesman said that the intelligence agencies, particularly the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), are working in line with state policy in the best interest of the nation, both at the federal and provincial levels to act against terrorists of all hue and colour without any discrimination.

“Indeed the army's and ISI's role and contributions towards implementation of the National Action Plan have been proactive and unwavering.
