Islamabd, May 10 : Pakistan Chief of Army Staff (COAS), General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani has requested the Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani to convene a joint session of Parliament, whether the politicians will be properly briefed by Army officers about the Abbottabad incident.
Gen Kayani was addressing officers at Rawalpindi, Kharian and Sialkot garrisons on Monday.
He said that Abbottabad incident has been in sharp public focus. Incomplete information and lack of technical details have resulted in speculations and misreporting.
“Public dismay and despondency has also been aggravated due to insufficient formal response.
“It is believed that people of Pakistan need to be taken into confidence through their honourable elected representatives,” Kayani said.
Gen Kayani said that he has also requested that the strength of democracy must be put into effect to develop a consensus on important security issues including the war on terror.
Articulation of a national response through the Parliament, under the circumstances, is the most effective way to let the World know the historic achievements of Pakistan against Al Qaeda and its terror affiliates, said the Army Chief, according to a Dawn report.
