The Pakistan military today emphasised its commitment to democracy after it openly criticised the government's actions last month following investigations into a leaked newspaper story about a national security meeting.
Military's spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor at a press conference said, "We will continue to work with all government institutions to do what is best for the country."
"There's been a lot of talk about democracy in the past two weeks, but nowhere was there any mention that any actions should be taken against democracy," he added.
The latest row between the Army and government started after an article in the English-language Dawn newspaper in October, detailing high-level security talks, angered the army.
