for saying that a big military operation against cut-throats required a "national consensus" including parliament approval, describing his comments as a delay tactic.
The Afghan MPs who spoke to TOLOnews believe that Zardari could be using such statements as an excuse for Pakistain to delay the launch of a military attack as such a move should not require approval from the parliament.
"Parliaments do not have anything to do with the approval of military operations," Kabul MP Nazifa Zaki said. "This is another way to attract more international donations," he added.
Fellow MP Shir Wali Wardak said Zardari's comments are consistent with the country's past lack of action to combat cut-throats on its soil.
"Pakistain has never been honest towards eradication of cut-thoats. It should act more seriously," he said.
Zardari was reported by Dawn News as saying on Sunday that before Pakistain launches any military operation against the bad turbans, the country's governing bodies must agree on it after assessing the country's capacity to deal with an cut-thoat retaliation.
