ISLAMABAD:


Only the Foreign Office was authorised to give official statements and comments over the US operation in which Osama Bin Laden was killed, said Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Wednesday.


Talking to reporters outside the Parliament House, he said the Foreign Office and interior ministry were fully cooperating with each other on the issue and there was complete harmony between the two ministries.

The minister also said he will not make any statements, adding that other political leaders had also been asked to abstain from issuing statements on the issue. He urged media to avoid speculative reporting and said that the issue was extremely sensitive.
