Asif appreciates Turkish people for foiling coup attempt

Sialkot—Federal Minister for Defence, Water and Power Khawaja Muhammad Asif has appreciated the national unity, enthusiasm, courage and spirit of the Turkish people, through which they foiled the coup attempt in their country. Addressing participants of an election campaign meeting, held here at Talwara Mughalaan-Sialkot, the minister said that the Turkish people made history by taking to the streets in large numbers on the call of their President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and foiling a coup attempt.
Kh Asif said that some political elements were exhibiting immaturity in politics, negativity and politics of conflict by pro-longing the Panama leaks issue. He said that the political elements demanding accountability of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif are themselves plunderers of national wealth. He said that Panama leaks issue did not concern the people of Pakistan, saying that the plunderers had no right to demand accountability of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. He said that the corrupt political elements could not target an honest prime minister for their personal gains.
The defence minister alleged that the PPP looted the national wealth and all resources in Azad Jammu & Kashmir during its rule in AJK. He said the PPP government in AJK also damaged the Kashmir cause. Extending all support to PML-N candidate Chaudhry Muhammad Ishaq, the minister said that Pakistan was taking up the matter of killing of innocent Kashmiris by Indian army in the held Kashmir at all international forums effectively, and urging the international community to use its influence for restraining India from atrocities in the held valley.—APP
