Imran Khan: New contempt bill violates constitution

LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has termed the Contempt of Court bill 2012 as being a violation of the constitution and democracy.

Speaking to media prior to his departure for Gujranwala, Khan said by enacting legislation against contempt of court, the power of the courts was being diminished and criminals were being protected.

Khan added that people were frustrated because of loadshedding and now the decision to reopen the NATO supply had embarrassed them. “The US did not listen to any of Pakistan’s demands nor was any importance given to parliament’s recommendations,” Khan said.

Imran Khan: Law makers lost right to sit in parliament

GUJRANWALA: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chief Imran Khan Thursday said the legislators have lost their right to sit inside the Parliament after reopening Nato supply routes.

He was addressing a rally taken out here in protest against government's move to reopen Nato supply lines.

Imran Khan said the government gave no regard even to a single point of the resolution passed in the Parliament on new terms of engagement with the US and reopened the Nato supply route. "Shame on you," he chanted.

Khan said the loot and plunder of people's wealth coupled with electricity theft has set the country on a path to destruction.

He said the rulers' accounts are in foreign banks and his party will not allow them to leave the country. "We will get the people's money out of their pockets and bring them to justice," he vowed.

Imran Khan said the youth can become PTI leaders by contesting elections.

Pak offers joint probe in mumbai attack

NEW DELHI: Pakistan rejected Thursday renewed Indian charges that Pakistani "state actors" were involved in planning and coordinating the 2008 Mumbai attacks and offered a joint probe into the incidents.

"I would very strongly reject any insinuation of any involvement of any state agency in acts of terrorism in India," Pakistani Foreign Secretary Jalil Abbas Jilani told reporters after talks with his Indian counterpart Ranjan Mathai.

He told the media persons that the two-day meeting discussed matters related to terrorism and peace.

'The issue of Abu Jindal was also raised by the Indian side and we have made it clear that State of Pakistan has no role in terror activities in India. We consider terrorism a common enemy.'

"If we keep accusing each other, that will be of no benefit, and we will not find any result," he added. Jilani insisted that nothing should be allowed to prevent the peace process going forward.

"There should be absolutely no setback, because a setback is something we cannot afford," he said.

Speaking after his talks with Jilani, Mathai stressed that bringing those guilty for the Mumbai carnage to justice "would be the biggest confidence-building measure of all".

"We shall pursue this matter to its logical conclusion," Mathai said of the Indian investigation into Sayed Zabiuddin Ansari's testimony.

Mathai said Pakistan was provided more evidences regarding Mumbai attacks.

The two top civil servants in their respective ministries held two days of talks in New Delhi to bolster a peace dialogue.

The text of the joint statement issued after the two-day talks between Foreign Secretaries here:

During the second-round of the resumed dialogue process, the Foreign Secretaries of India and Pakistan met in New Delhi on July 4-5, 2012 for bilateral talks on Peace and Security including CBMs, Jammu & Kashmir and Promotion of Friendly Exchanges.

The dates for the meetings of Expert Level Groups will be determined through diplomatic channels.

5. The Foreign Secretaries noted that both countries recognize that terrorism poses a continuing threat to peace and security.

8. Both sides underlined the importance of greater people to people contacts and friendly exchanges in building a relationship of trust and friendship between the two countries.

Latests News: Air Jet Crashed In Balochistan

KARACHI: A Pakistani fighter jet crashed in the south of the country Tuesday while on routine training but the pilot ejected safely and there were no casualties on the ground, an air force official said.

The French-built Mirage jet took off from the Pakistan Air Force’s Masroor Base in Karachi and crashed near the town of Uthal in southwestern Balochistan province, air force spokesman Squadron Leader Mohammad Nadeem told AFP.

Uthal is around 60 kilometres west of Karachi.

“The pilot ejected successfully and safely,” the spokesman said, adding the cause of the accident would be determined after an investigation.

No loss of civilian life or property was reported on ground, he said.

It was the second Mirage aircraft crash in the region in a month. A Mirage-V crashed on May 11 while its pilot ejected safely as well.

The Pakistan Air Force has a fleet of Chinese aircraft including F-7PGs and A-5s, plus US-built F-16s and French Mirages. It recently acquired JF-17s Thunder jets, manufactured jointly by China and Pakistan.

India-US Defense Talks

India-US Defense Talks To Focus On China

US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta holds talks Wednesday with his Indian counterpart which are likely to be dominated by NATO's planned exit from Afghanistan and China's growing power.

Panetta's two-day visit to New Delhi is part of a tour of the region that has stressed Washington's strategic shift to Asia, with US officials portraying India as an anchor for the new approach.

In talks Tuesday with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Panetta "underscored the link India plays between East and West Asia and how the United States views India as a net provider of security from the Indian Ocean to Afghanistan and beyond", his press secretary George Little said.

Panetta will meet Defence Minister A.K. Antony on Wednesday before giving a policy speech at the Institute for Defense Studies and Analyses.

In his talks with Antony, Panetta was expected to discuss NATO's planned withdrawal of combat forces from Afghanistan by the end of 2014 as well an expanding arms trade and joint military training between the two countries.

Indian officials are worried the departure of most of the US-led force could leave a dangerous vacuum in Afghanistan, and question if the Kabul government and its fledgling army will be able to fend off Taliban insurgents.

US officials said Panetta was encouraging India to play a more active role in Afghanistan, despite Pakistan's deep suspicion of its arch-foe's motives in the country.

Earlier on his nine-day tour through Asia, Panetta unveiled plans to shift the majority of the US naval fleet to the Pacific by 2020, a symbolic step meant to signal US determination to preserve its influence in the face of a rising China.

Beijing said Monday the US naval plan was "untimely" and called on Washington to respect its interests in the region.

The tilt towards Asia is designed mainly as a way to check China's role, particularly in the contested South China Sea, reinforcing US diplomacy in support of smaller nations locked in territorial disputes with Beijing.

The US administration views India as a counterweight to China, though in public statements senior officials insist the new strategy is not meant as a challenge to Beijing.

Panetta's visit follows India's successful test launch in April of a new missile capable of delivering a one-tonne nuclear warhead anywhere in China, marking a major advance in its military capabilities.

India views the rocket, which has a range of 5,000 kilometers (3,100 miles), as a boost to its regional power aspirations and one that narrows - albeit slightly - the huge gap with China's missile systems.

India is investing in military hardware to modernize its armed forces, and the United States has become one of its major arms suppliers, with $8.5 billion in sales over the past 11 years, according to the Pentagon.

Panetta's trip coincides with two weapons deals that are close to being wrapped up.

India has agreed to buy 145 howitzer guns from the US unit of British arms group BAE Systems in a deal worth $560 million. And India is close to clinching a $1.4 billion agreement to purchase 22 Apache attack helicopters manufactured by Boeing, US officials said.
