ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan has said the Dawn Leaks was never about Army and the Government, but about national security.

“The whole nation now needs to know what was settled,” the PTI chief said, in a series of tweets Wednesday, following an agreement between the Army and Nawaz-led government on Dawn Leaks.

Pakistan Army on Wednesday “withdrew” a tweet sent out by Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General on April 29 which said the Prime Minister Office’s directives on the Dawn story inquiry report were “rejected”.

“The tweet on April 29, 2017 was not aimed at any government office or person,” an ISPR press release said.

 “Recommendations, as contained in Para 18 of the Inquiry Committee Report, duly approved by the prime minister, have been implemented, which has settled the Dawn leaks issue,” it added.

“Accordingly, ISPR’s said Twitter post stands withdrawn and has become infructuous.

“Pakistan Army reiterates its firm commitment and continued resolve to uphold the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and support the democratic process.”

On April 29, the government issued notification sacking special assistant to PM Tariq Fatemi while referring the issue of dawn Leaks to APNS. Not only that, Principal Information Officer Rao Tehseen was also fired days after the notification.
