ISLAMABAD - Parliamentary Committee on National Security has almost completed the initial draft recommendations to redefine the country’s foreign policy with specific reference to the country’s ties with the US and cooperation with Nato/Isaf in ongoing war on terror.

Sources aware of the broader understanding reached between the members of the committee informed The Nation that committee would be going to recommend tough conditions for country’s engagement in war on terror and would also took a stringent stance on the unabated drone attacks inside Pakistani territory on the pretext of hunting down terrorists.

Sources further informed that it was also consensus view of the members that no compromise on the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity would be made and in this connection committee would recommend the government to rewrite the agreements with the United States and Nato. They said the committee would recommend restoration of the Nato supplies via Pakistan only after getting credible assurances from US and Afghanistan that no incursion into the Pakistan territory would be made in future.

The Parliamentary Committee in its earlier resolutions adopted in connection with drone attacks had said that these attacks being carried out without the consent of Pakistani authorities should not be tolerated and the US would be informed in clear words that drone attacks were counterproductive and hindering the efforts to segregate militant elements from general public.

The committee meeting under the head of Senator Mian Raza Rabbani on Wednesday fine-tuned the recommendation clauses and the same would be given the shape of the initial draft by the supporting staff by Thursday when it would be discussed with the officials of finance ministry for their final nod.

Talking to media persons after the meeting Senator Raza Rabbani informed that the committee on Thursday would have final session with finance ministry where the finance minister would brief the members of the committee and would discuss the nitty-gritty of the draft recommendations. And if required they would introduce some changes in it in the light of the discussion with the minister.
