Altaf’s apology is a postive gesture: PM Nawaz

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif today urged media to follow the code of conduct showing responsible attitude in its reports.


In a statement issued on Saturday, PM said that irresponsible statements not only damage the integrity of national institutions, but also hurt sentiments of the general public.

The premier added it is responsibility of the government to safeguard respect and honour of the armed forces of the country.

PM further added that the apology tendered by Muttahida Qaumi Movement Chief Altaf Hussain is a positive gesture, but the matters relating to national security and national interest are very sensitive.
