Emergency was essential to avert institutional breakdown: Pak FONovember 14th, 2007 - 10:15 am ICT by admin
“The international community must understand the gravity of the situation in which emergency has been imposed.
“We reject a few of the unwarranted criticism and excessive reactions that clearly betray a lack of understanding of the challenging circumstances faced by the country,” the statement added.
Meanwhile, Pakistan’s Ambassador to the US, Mehmood Durrani, has said the emergency would be lifted soon, and an interim government would be set up to conduct elections.
Defending the government’s decision, Durrani said that had the people been unhappy with the emergency decision, they would have come out on the streets, the Daily Times reported. (ANI)
