GARHI KHUDA BUX Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani on Monday said the Pakistans struggle against militancy was for its own survival and sovereignty and not the US war. Pakistan as a member of the international community follows the international rules but we will not act on anyones dictations. He was talking to newsmen after paying his homage at the mausoleum of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto in Garhi Khuda Bux in connection with 57th birth anniversary of the great leader. We are fighting the war of people for the countrys integrity, he said. Responding to a question whether there was any pressure on Pakistan regarding the multi-billion-dollar Iran-Pak gas pipeline project, Gilani said in case the US imposed any restriction on Iran, the matter would be reviewed in the light of international laws. If the US imposes sanctions, they will have international implications and Pakistan as a member of the international community will follow them, he remarked. He said Pakistan under the international obligations would adhere to any restrictions imposed against any country. The prime minister said the killers of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto would not be spared and brought to justice, as the government was moving forward in investigating the matter in light of the UN report. Replying to a question on Kalabagh Dam, Gilani said the project had remained contentious since 1985, adding that he was not personally opposed to the disputed dam but the issue should resolved with a complete consensus among the provinces. He said during the recent debate in the National Assembly, some members of the former ruling party were playing to the gallery as they could have constructed the dam while they were in power. Gilani said law and order was a provincial subject, which could be resolved through negotiations with allies. The prime minister said, We are pursuing the reconciliation policy and taking all the institutions on board under the vision of Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto, who believed in consensus and wanted to resolve all such matters through reconciliation. Paying homage to Shaheed BB, he said she had a vision to strengthen democracy, Constitution and media and gave a call for long march for restoration of judges, adding that she was a symbol of the federation, binding the four provinces together. She was not a leader of Sindh or Pakistan only but a great leader of the whole world, he said. Talking about govts achievements, he said apart from ending the dictatorship, the 1973 Constitution had been restored while 18th Amendment was passed by the Parliament unanimously. To another question, Gilani said during the talks with his Indian counterpart Manmohan Singh, they had agreed that war was not a solution to any issue. The peoples of both the countries faced a number of problems including poverty, inflation, unemployment and terrorism; therefore, they should pursue dialogue, as the only best solution for resolving all the issues, he added. Pakistan wants to have good neighbourly relations with India, he stated. On the NFC Award, he said it was a consensus award, which would go a long way in empowering the provinces. Earlier, Gilani placed a floral wreath at Shaheed Benazir Bhuttos grave and offered fateha. Speaker National Assembly Dr Fehmida Mirza, Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah, federal ministers Qamar Zaman Kaira, Syed Naveed Qamar and Raja Pervez Ashraf besides provincial ministers, Pakistans Ambassador to UAE Khurshid Ahmed Junejo and leaders of Pakistan Peoples Party were also present on the occasion.
