TAXILA: Former interior minister and Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz leader Nisar Ali Khan said on Thursday that Pakistan’s military is capable enough and if there is the concept of joint operations then it should be mutual.

The former interior minister was addressing a press conference in Taxila, where he made the statement when asked about the purported speech by Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif offering the US an in-sync operation against the Haqqani network.

He said that Pakistan has proof that the terrorist groups are operating from the other side of the border.

While referring to the cases against the Sharif’s, the senior PML-N leader said Pakistan has both democracy and rule of law.

Nisar said that the decision of the cases will be given by the courts and nowhere else.

“It is a part of our oath to not criticise the institutions,” he said.

He said that he always stood by his stance that no confrontation with the judiciary should take place as it does not go in the favour of Nawaz Sharif.
