Nawaz Sharif, Qamar Javed Bajwa to amicably resolve row

Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and army chief Qamar Javed Bajwa have resolved to “amicably” address the differences over a leaked report that had angered the powerful army, a media report said today.

In October, a columnist for Dawn newspaper wrote a front-page story about a rift between civilian and military leaderships over militant groups that operate from Pakistan, but engage in proxy war against India and Afghanistan. Army resented the “leaked news” item and asked for a probe. Geo News reported that meeting was held on Thursday night at the “wish” of the PM.
