The participants of the high-profile meeting, under the chair of Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, 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.
"The participants unanimously rejected the allegations and condemned the fallacious assertions", it added.
According to a communique released on Monday, the NSC meeting recalled that it was not Pakistan, but India that had delayed the finalisation of the case.
The National Security Committee resolved that Pakistan shall continue to play its due role in fighting the war against terrorism at all fronts.
The comments, in which Sharif implied he was removed from office by the Supreme Court a year ago for trying to end military support for anti-India militants, led to uproar in Pakistan, where criticising the military is increasingly considered a "red line" that can not be crossed.
Sharif, for the first time, publicly acknowledged in an interview that militant organisations are active in Pakistan and questioned the policy to allow the "non-state actors to cross the border and kill people in Mumbai".
In its annual report, the statement said that the World Bank estimates bilateral remittances between countries using the methodology summarised in the World Bank Working Paper 102 South-South migration and remittances by the authors of the report.
Last week, Sharif told local newspaper Dawn that Pakistan needed to act against anti-India armed groups that are operating on its soil, a claim India has often made and which Pakistan has long officially denied. "Why can't we complete the trial?"
It is being seen as an admission of Pakistan's involvement in the terrorist attacks in 2008. Nawaz's party the Pakistan Muslim League too issued a clarification, saying that the Indian media had "grossly misinterpreted" his remarks.
"What did I say that was wrong in the interview?"
Sharif's comments have stirred a controversy in Pakistan, prompting the National Security Committee to call a high-level meeting to reject the statement. He said that he is not resigning.
"Surjewala further said: "Our second question to Modi is, will you show the courage of conviction and the 56" chest to ensure that the trial of 26/11 perpetrators, who are neither being adequately tried nor punished in Pakistan, is either held under the guidance of worldwide agencies or they are handed over alternatively to India?" "The civilians don't really have much of a say in the NSC meetings", he told Asia Times.
The premier disclosed that the controversial statement was termed as "ridiculous" in the NSC meeting. "During the meeting we made a resolve that Pakistan's soil will not be allowed to be used for terrorism", he said, adding: "I am not here to clarify Nawaz's position, the objective of this media talk is to clear the air of confusion". "Indian propaganda can not undermine our achievements", he said.
He elaborated that the media in India took a "line or two" from the interview and misrepresented it out of context.
India said the gunmen were Pakistani and had arrived on the Mumbai waterfront by rubber boat after crossing the Arabian sea from the Pakistani city of Karachi in a trawler. "Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and I stand behind our Quaid", he reiterated.
