Talk of deal with Nawaz Sharif baseless-there is no such thing says DG ISPR

 DG ISPR urged the media to keep the establishment out of politics

Director-General Inter-Services Public Relations Maj Gen Babar Iftikhar addressed an important press conference on Wednesday to review the foremost developments in the security domain in the past year, during which he also categorically rejected the impression there was "a deal" in the works with former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

DG ISPR tried to clear the air regarding the speculation about possible deal with Nawaz Sharif and  civil- military relations. He declared the talk of deal with Nawaz Sharif  as a mere speculation. He said that there is no such thing. He also urged the media to keep the establishment out of the politics. 

During the question and answers session, when asked to comment on rumours of a deal with PML-N's self-exiled leader Nawaz Sharif, the DG ISPR said: "I will only say that all of this is baseless speculation.

"If anyone is talking about a deal, please ask them who is doing the deal. Where is the evidence of such a deal. There is no such thing," he said.

The DG ISPR called on reporters to instead question those talking about a deal, reiterating that it was "baseless speculation". "In my understanding, and I am very clear on that, this is baseless speculation."

Later, he was also asked about the state of civil-military relations, to which he responded that there were no issues." The armed forces are subservient to the government and work according to their directives. There is nothing more to it."

He also urged the media to keep the "establishment" out of politics. "There are more issues to discuss in this country, such as health and education- please keep us out of it."
