Islamabad: Amid tension with the Army, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Sunday summoned close aides — finance minister Ishaq Dar and interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan — to Lahore, sources said.
The meeting comes a day after the Army rejected Mr Sharif’s inquiry report on Dawn leaks as “incomplete”. Sources said recommendations on the Dawn leaks would be discussed in the Sunday meeting.
An article detailing high-level security talks published in Dawn in October had angered the Army and led to the firing of then-information minister Pervez Rashid.
After an inquiry into the leak, Mr Sharif on Saturday sacked special advisor on foreign affairs Tariq Fatemi and ordered action against principal information secretary Rao Tehsin.
But the Army rejected the directive. “Notification on Dawn Leak is incomplete and not in line with recommendations by the Inquiry Board. Notification is rejected.,” military spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor, said on Twitter.
