ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif have a vis-à-vis on Tuesday.
“Though the PM House confirmed the meeting between the two authorities, it did not divulge the agenda of the meeting,” source from the PM House said.
“During the meeting, the premier and COAS are likely to discuss and resolve the unnecessary rifts which erupted between civil and military leadership following controversial statements issued from both sides last month,” said the sources.
The sources, however, hinted that PM Nawaz might be sharing with Gen Raheel the details related to his meeting with his Indian counterpart. Genera Raheel, on the other hand, is also expected to talk in detail his recent visit to the United States, said the sources.
Further maintained the sources, saying: “Military leadership has reservations over PM Nawaz’ stance on the ongoing Karachi operation as he fully stands with Pakistan Peoples Party Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari and the Sindh government, rather than giving a political go-ahead to law enforcement agencies to address Karachi’s law and order situation.”
Previously, COAS employed a corps commanders’ meeting in order to add efforts of the security forces in nailing down the terrorists.
