He said that all the accused in the story of New York Times have refuted its details. He said that he accepts the mistakes we made in the past. He said that we claim that we disintegrated Russia in Afghanistan and now have defeated America. He said that it is a result of our wrong policies that today bombs are exploding in Pakistan. He said that we should not fi9ght a war more that we are capable of and should not interfere in Afghanistan. He said that Sartaj Aziz has denied that Pakistan will interfere in Syria against 1.5 billion dollars of aid.
GENERAL (R) ZIA U DIN BUTT FORMER DGISI said that New York Times has targeted ISI that it works of its own. He said that ISI always follows the policies of the government and is being criticized for no reason. He said that ISI and Pervez Musharaf were not playing double game against America.
He said that what he stated was that ISI should have knowledge about Osama presence in the country. He said that it is hard to tell at this time that our intelligence agencies knew about the operation against Osama or not.
He said that there should be accountability about all the incidents if it has not done in the past it should be done now. He said that there should be complete accountability and media can play a vital role in this regards.
WASEH JALIL OF MQM said that Sartaj Aziz has confessed in his press conference that 1.5 billion dollars aid has been given regarding Syria. He said that Altaf Hussain has always exposed the facts. He said that Osama was present in Pakistan but no institution was involved in it. He said that we can be an independent country but some people make wrong decisions for personal gains.
GENERAL (R) AMJAD SHOAIB said that no other country has served America like Pakistan we handed over 500 Taliban to this country. He said that we went this far that we turned in Afghan ambassador to America. He said that we helped America and what it did is that it stationed India in Afghanistan against Pakistan. He said that accountability should be done if it takes place it will gradually become the part of the system.
