Nobody should try to instruct Pakistan on how it should conduct the war on terror, Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani said on Monday.

After attending a cultural show arranged by the Chinese embassy at the National Art Gallery, he told journalists Pakistan was fighting the war on terror in its own interest and was not acting as a “proxy”. The army, the political leadership and the people are united in the war against the terrorists, the APP news agency reported him as saying.
