The spokesman said the PML-N as the country's premier popular national political party and its supreme leader (Nawaz Sharif) need no certificate from anybody on their commitment and capacity to preserve, protect and promote Pakistan's national security.

"The statement by the former premier benefited India and appeared prejudiced towards the state's safety and the interests, and that apparently Sharif is guilty of high treason as well as offences punishable in terms of the Official Secret Act, 1923 for which he deserves to be proceeded in accordance with law", the petitioners said.

However Sharif defended his defended his remarks asking, "What did I say that was wrong in the interview?"
