"In the light of this admission, it is about time for the worldwide community to devise a strategy to end Pakistani army generals' involvement in civilian affairs and to establish a true democratic set up in Pakistan where all ethnic and religious groups have equal representations in decision-making", Nusrat said.
The statement by the Prime Minister Office added: "The participants observed that it was very unfortunate that the opinion arising out of either misconceptions or grievances was being presented in disregard of concrete facts and realities".
Along with his daughter and other family members, Sharif, whose party came to power through a landslide victory in 2013, is already facing three corruption allegations, which, he claims, are "cooked up" and aimed at ousting him and his party from politics.
He further said that the NSC did not condemn Nawaz, but the incorrect reporting of the former prime minister's interview.
Moreover, Imran Khan also demanded resignations of Shahbaz Sharif and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi for siding with the sacked premier.
Sharif, 68, was disqualified by the Supreme Court for not being "honest and righteous" as he failed to declare in 2013 a salary he got from the company of his son in the UAE.
The military, which has ruled Pakistan for about half its history, denies any interference in civilian politics.
Pakistan has come under pressure from the United States and India to do more, however, to shut down groups such as the Afghan Taliban, the Haqqani Network and Lashkar-e-Taiba, which target U.S. forces in Afghanistan or Indian forces in the disputed region of Kashmir.
The Mumbai terror attacks case is being tried in an anti-terrorism court in Pakistan since 2009, but the case isn't going anywhere.
Later, Sharif faced a volley of criticism for his remarks. He said since the attack took place, it was the Indian government which possessed "90 per cent of the evidence and facts" of the incident.
According to the press release, the participants of the meeting held that the delay in the Mumbai attacks trial was due to India's refusal to cooperate, not Pakistan.
Proceeding to foreign and security policies, Sharif again targeted the army, without specifically taking its name.
Nawaz on May 12, during an interview with a local daily, had stated that "Militant organisations are active. Explain it to me", he asked, in a clear reference to the Mumbai killings blamed on 10 Pakistani terrorists. He had questioned why his country had not been able to complete the trial in the case yet.
"We need to understand the ongoing dynamics and should support our armed forces shoulder to shoulder", he added stressing that an global conspiracy to isolate Pakistan is being hatched. "Despite giving sacrifices, our narrative is not being accepted", Sharif said.
