ISLAMABAD – Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has summoned a meeting of the National Security Committee (NSC) on Tuesday in which the book co-authored by former Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief is likely to be discussed besides reviewing the implementation of FATA reforms, reported a private media outlet.

It said the meeting is also likely to discuss the matter of a controversial book co-authored by former chief of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Lt Gen (retd) Asad Durrani, besides reviewing the implementation of FATA Reforms.

The top civilian and military leadership will ponder over the regional situation and issues pertaining to eastern and western borders of the country, sources added.

Durrani, who served as the chief of Pakistan’s premier intelligence agency from August 1990 till March 1992, co-authored a book with former Indian spy chief AS Dulat, titled ‘The Spy Chronicles: RAW, ISI and the Illusion of Peace’.

The meeting is summoned days after former premier Nawaz Sharif voiced his reservations over the book.

Speaking to journalists in Islamabad last week, Sharif demanded that an emergency meeting of the NSC be summoned over the book written by Durrani.
