‘Waziristan operation against militants after consensus of Army, civilian leadership’
Islamabad: A meeting convened by Pakistan Army Chief General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani, after carrying out a careful evaluation of the North Waziristan issue, has decided that any operation in the restive region would be carried out only after a thorough consensus between the army and civilian leadership, strictly in accordance with national interests, and at a convenient time.
Earlier, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) chief Lieutenant General Asim Bajwa had put the ball in the political leadership`s court on the question of whether or not to launch an operation in Waziristan, saying that it would be a "political decision", reports The News.
Sources said that, in the meeting, matters relating to overall regional security issues, Pak-US relations, intelligence cooperation, anti-terrorist efforts and various options to defend border posts and security forces from cross-border attacks were also mulled upon.
