Telephonic conversation between the President and Chief of Army Staff, the meeting between the Prime Minister and Chief of Army Staff held on 16th December
Rawalpindi: Some events of the last 72 hours are being attributed to the telephonic conversation between the President and COAS and the meeting between the Prime Minister and COAS held on 16th December 2011.
The Prime Minister has already spoken on the subject in which he stated, “during the meeting with COAS on Friday night, I received a telephonic call from the President by chance. When I informed the President that I was having a meeting with the Army Chief, the President asked me to convey his regards to General Kayani. On this, COAS showed his desire to speak to the President.”
The telephonic conversation between the President and COAS lasted approximately one minute in which he enquired about the health of the President. Hence, attributing anything more to this telephonic conversation is unfounded and unnecessary.
As regards the meeting between the COAS and Prime Minister, a comprehensive press release has already been issued by the PM House which is unambiguous.
