Referring to him as "Hafiz Saeed sahab(Sir)", Abbasi said that there is no case in the country against the JuD chief.

"I don't think there is a danger of war, at least from our side, it isn't there".

Responding to a question on the Indian Army chief's remarks about calling Pakistan's "nuclear bluff" and possible cross-border operations, Abbasi said: "The Indian Army chief will not speak in favour of us". The US President had announced that for year US has been financially supporting Pakistan so that they can act against terrorism but those days were over.

Meanwhile, former Pakistan Diplomat Husain Haqqani said that the Pakistan PM furnish proofs of his claim that there is no substantial evidence to try and convict 26/11 terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed, reported ANI. If there was a case, action would be taken.

In an interview to a television channel on Tuesday, Pakistan PM openly supported Saeed, the Jamaat-ud Dawa chief and Lashkar-e-Toiba co-founder. Since then he has been operating freely in Pakistan and has even expressed a desire to run for a political office, under a newly formed political party Milli Muslim League (MML). "The government doesn't interfere in that", he said. "We have always remained responsibility".

Karzai also said the Russia-Pakistan relationship is "very new" as against the US-Pakistan relationship, saying the "Russian military is not that close to Pakistan military as say the US military is".

He said the government believed that the reform and the merger process of Fata should be completed in steps so that if any issue crops up, those would be resolved timely. He said India must understand that when there are violations at the LoC, there would be retaliation. "This sort of meetings keep happening, this is not something new and such meetings help in understanding each other's positions and to convey messages", he said.
