After accepting the report, President Solih said that the report was important and hard work conducted by the committee over a short period of time, and thanked the committee members for their hard work.

President Solih said he will look into the points highlighted in the report, and take corrective measures where possible.

He also provided assurance the report will be shared with the National Security Council, and key national security related work conducted as soon as possible.

Aslam, meanwhile, thanked the government for its cooperation in compiling the report.

He expressed confidence the government will address the issues highlighted in the report.
