Gilani clarifies Kayani’s statement on Balochistan
Islamabad, Aug 2: Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani Tuesday said the Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvaiz Kayani has always acknowledged the role of political government and its mandate to hold talks with Baloch leaders.
An official statement said that the Prime Minister dispelled the impression by PML-N MNA Saad Rafiq that the army would hold talks with Baloch leaders.
The Prime Minister clarified that General Kayani never made such remarks. He said the COAS categorically stated that democratic government needs to talk to the Baloch leaders as it was not the task of the army to hold such a dialogue.
The Prime Minister also dispelled the impression that the government wanted to create differences between various segments of society in Karachi, and added that his government only desired peace in the city.
