Pakistans defence in strong hands says Gilani


Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has said there is no threat to
Pakistan as it is a stable and powerful country and its defence is in
strong hands.

Talking to the media at Prime Minister House on Saturday, Gilani said:
"There is no threat to Pakistan, no danger to Pakistan as it is a stable
and strong country."

He said Pakistan is a responsible state and an important member of the
international community, reported Associated Press of Pakistan. Gilani's
ties with the powerful army had hit a rocky patch in recent months.

Pakistan's political scenario was thrown in turmoil after Gilani accused
army chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani and ISI chief Shuja Pasha of
violating the Constitution by submitting their replies to the Supreme
Court on the alleged memo sent to Washington that said President Asif Ali
Zardari feared a military takeover following the killing of Al-Qaeda chief
Osama bin Laden.
