The President House on Thursday asserted that no any clause of the Kerry-Lugar bill is against the national security and maintained that the Ministry of Defence and Parliament’s Committee on Defence Affairs were the appropriate forums for military to raise its concerns on US legislation.

Spokesman to the President Former Senator Farhatullah Baber in an interview in ARY NEWS’ show ‘Late Edition’ said "the Pakistan Army can itself define appropriately its concerns on the US legislation," aimed at tripling US aid to Pakistan to $1.5 billion per annum for next five years.

The spokesman said that the conditions suggested in the Kerry-Lugar bill for Pakistan to qualify for US aid were the similar ones as were included in past many legislations by the US Congress regarding providing assistance to Pakistan.

Baber rejected any possibility of clash among the institutions of the country in reaction of the differences on the issue.
