No plan yet for North Waziristan operation: Malik


Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Monday ruled out any possibility of a military operation in North Waziristan Agency anytime soon. Talking to reporters, the minister said the conspiracy to attack Malala Yousafzai was hatched by militant groups operating along the Pak-Afghan border. “For the time being there is no plan for military operation in North Waziristan Agency. But if needed, the decision would be taken by political and military leadership of the country in harmony,” he said. He said Malala’s transfer to Britain was kept secret for security concerns. The minister thanked the UAE government for providing an air ambulance to transfer Malala to Britain for treatment.
