Kayani meets top army commanders after US claims
Islamabad, Sep 25: Pakistan Army chief Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani today convened a special meeting of his top commanders to review the security situation against the backdrop of mounting tensions with the US over its asssertion the the military-run ISI had links to the Haqqani network.
The "Special Corps Commanders Conference" held at the General Headquarters in Rawalpindi will "review the prevailing security situation in the country", said a brief statement from the military.
The meeting will be attended by all Corps Commanders and Principal Staff Officers, the statement said. The move comes in the wake of a sharp escalation of rhetoric between Pakistan and the US following American military chief Admiral Mike Mullen's accusation that the Inter-Services Intelligence is backing the Haqqani network, blamed for a string of high-profile terror attacks, including a recent assault on the US Embassy in Kabul.
