The Al Azizia Steel Mills reference is among three filed against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his family by the NAB previous year on the Supreme Court's directives. The participants termed the remarks as contrary to the facts and said that Indian government didn't present evidence for investigation.

Abbasi said he was confident that the parliamentarians making fiery speeches against Nawaz Sharif had not even read the interview and were only making the fuss out of nothing.

The National Security Council (NSC), in a special meeting on Monday called by the military, rejected Sharif's comments in an interview with Pakistan's Dawn newspaper as "incorrect and misleading", the prime minister's office said in a statement.

According to media reports, the NAB chairman in his response to the appearance informed the committee that he has prior commitments, saying that he received the notice for the appearance in the morning.

Sharif, as per an exclusive Dawn news report, in that meeting had raised the issue of Pakistan's growing global isolation because of behind-the-scenes support by military to banned terror groups, including Jaish-e-Muhammad, Jamaat-ud-Dawa and the Haqqani Network. "We believe this is interference in the functioning of NAB and we are strongly opposed to interference in the matters of other state institutions", he said.
