Islamabad, Sep 2 (IANS) Pakistani Army commanders have reposed 'full confidence' in the way President Pervez Musharraf is handling the volatile situation in Balochistan, a newspaper reported Saturday.

The Dawn said Musharraf, who chaired the meeting of commanders here Friday, stressed that it was the government's duty to ensure peace and tranquility in the country.

Musharraf also made it clear that nobody was above the law and that the writ of the government would have to be established throughout the country at all costs.

The remarks are widely seen as his justification of the killing of Baloch leader Akbar Khan Bugti in a military operation in Balochistan.

The killing sparked violence across Balochistan and parts of Sindh and Punjab.

The Dawn said Musharraf also took the corps commanders into confidence on the situation along the country's Afghan and Indian borders.

The meeting was attended by vice chief of army staff, all corps commanders and principal staff officers.
