There Was No Evidence of Clear Conspiracy: DG ISPR
Director General (DG) of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Babar Iftikhar said Wednesday that what services chiefs and the DG ISI said in the National Security Committee (NSC) meeting showed that there was no evidence of any clear conspiracy in the cipher received from the US.
No Word Of Conspiracy Was Used In NSC Declaration
Iftikhar, while on a private television channel, said it was a considered stance of the services chiefs based on intelligence information and their opinion. “A detailed briefing on the issue was given which was based on the intelligence information. That was why no word of conspiracy was used in the NSC declaration,” he said.
Matter Of The Chiper Was An Issue Of National Security
The military spokesman said the matter of the cipher was an issue of national security and should not have been made a political one. He said all the services chiefs and the DG ISI were also present at the NSC huddle, the agenda of which was already decided based on intelligence-based information.

No One Could Deny The Reality Of The Chiper Issue
Reacting to the military’s statement, former prime minister Imran Khan said no one could deny the reality of the cipher issue.
Imran Khan said on March 7 that Donald Lu, a US diplomat, in a meeting with the Pakistani envoy, warned to oust his government. The envoy confirmed the development through a cipher to the Foreign Office of Pakistan.
Khan said all of a sudden, after tabling the no-confidence motion, some PTI MNAs and fellow parties decided to leave the government by cursing it. “We have all the details of the people who met officials of the US consulate,” Khan added.
