Pakistan will soon overcome its political crisis: Defence Minister

Defence Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif says Pakistan will soon overcome its political crisis.

In an interview with Al Jazeera, he said PTI’s armed groups attacked military installations during violent incidents in Rawalpindi, Mianwali and Lahore on 9th May.

He said PML-N’s leaders despite their arrests in past did not opt for violence. He said our party did not attack on army’s installations.

The Minister said people who have attacked the military installations are enemies of the country. He said such action is tantamount to war against Pakistan.

Khawaja Muhammad Asif said trials of people involved in attacking military installations, military bases and residences of military personnel, will be under the Army Act as per the Constitution.

He said general elections will be held on its due time in October this year.
