ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Rehman Malik said on Thursday that the government would take a decision regarding the Nato supply according to the recommendations given by 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 the Pak-Afghan border on November 26, the minister informed the media after addressing a ceremony.
The ceremony was held to pay tributes to the security personnel who were killed or had suffered disabilities in the 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 they will be,” the minister said.
Malik said that as a result of the unmatched sacrifices rendered by our Army, Frontier Corps, Frontier Constabulary and the police in the war against terror, the militants have been defeated in Swat and Malakand divisions.
Responding to a question, the minister said he would visit the police-pickets set up at different roads of the capital, and assured that all the unnecessary check-posts would be removed to ensure the smooth flow of traffic.
Justifying the police-pickets in the federal capital, Malik said that law enforcement agencies were alerted on a daily basis and the security is tightened accordingly to avoid any untoward incident.
Commenting on the G-11 firing incident in which an assistant sub-inspector was killed, the minister said that an inquiry has been ordered to probe into the incident. However, he was of the view that it could also be a result of some personal enmity.
