Covert agreements with US be made public — DAWN.COM

ISLAMABAD: PML-N chief Mian Nawaz Sharif asked the government on Friday to disclose terms of engagement with the United States under which the so-called war on terror was being fought. He said at a press conference that the nation had the right to be informed about the covert agreements.

According to official estimates, he said, the country had suffered a loss of $69 billion during the war on terror and sacrificed thousands of lives. “But in return we are getting threats and being treated as an accused.”

He said flawed policies of the government formulated after bypassing parliament were responsible for the current situation. He also criticised the government for ignoring political parties while taking major decisions.
