SenateIslamabad, September 16, 2015: While speaking on a matter of public importance, President Centre for Pakistan and Gulf Studies, Senator Sehar Kamran (T.I.) urged Chairman Senate to request the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to come to the house and take people in confidence before going to the US to address the United Nations General Assembly.

Ms Kamran regretted that the government was openly saying that the Kashmir issue had been excluded from the Ufa declaration on India’s request. “Why do we make compromises on national interests?” she asked while referring to the declaration that was issued after the meeting between Mr Sharif and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Russia in July.

Senator Kamran inquired about the status of action on the ceasefire violations committed by India and said how long can we continue to condemn these incidents? She said what we need is a comprehensive policy to counter the increasing threat perception and the public should be informed as to what has been communicated to stop the consistent violations of Line of Control and the breach of sovereignty of Pakistan.

Lastly, she said despite her insistence there has been no briefing on the national security policy of Pakistan, she requested the house that a briefing be arranged to take people in confidence. Senator Sehar Kamran said the national interests of Pakistan are supreme and they should not be compromised because of certain individuals’ business interests.
