ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani will take the Parliament into confidence on May 9 over the US operation against Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad.

According to a statement issued by the Prime Minister House on Saturday, the decision was taken following a meeting between the Prime Minister, Army Chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani and President Asif Ali Zardari at the Presidency in Islamabad.

According to sources, policies to protect the sovereignty of the country came under discussion during the meeting. The prime minister has also consulted the defence minister and the foreign secretary over the Abbottabad operation.

Gilani has earlier said that the United States should not have “bypassed” Pakistan on the Abbottabad raid. Bin Laden’s death in a US special forces’ unilateral assault on Sunday has been criticised officially and by opposition parties as an “infringement” on Pakistan’s sovereignty, with a warning to the US from civil and military leaders that the repeat of such a raid would spell “catastrophe”.

Khalid Masood | 10 years ago | Reply @Qasim: If you have no confidence then you probably wants to leave Pakistan for some safe heaven. Because in Pakistan are here you have to live with this incompetent govt and military. No escape. You want to go to Canada or like to apply for India citizenship? My dear, Was elimination of OBL a bigger blow then the event of 9/11 that too in the heart of sole super power. Did any US citizen said that they do not have confidence or faith on US Govt, CIA or US Military? I do not know why you people behave like ignorant illiterates.
