Abbasi said this while talking to senior journalists after an emergency meeting of the National Security Committee (NSC) - Pakistan's top civil-military body - that condemned Sharif's "fallacious" statement and termed it as "incorrect and misleading".
Sharif, for the first time, questioned Pakistan's policy to allow the "non-state actors" to cross the border and "kill" people in Mumbai as he publicly acknowledged in an interview that militant groups are active in the country.
"A few sentences (from the newspaper interview) were blown out of proportion and context. I have clarified those (statements)," Abbasi asserted.
Stating that the NSC dismissed those words which were misreported, Abbasi said the meeting did not condemn Sharif but incorrect reporting of his interview.
"Indian media is giving the issue a different hue, and we should not be a part of it," he said.
Abbasi said there was no tension between the civil and military. He said misunderstandings are removed in the light of the facts.
He said that no one forced him to talk to the media and it was his own decision to give the explanatory statement.
Abbasi said that he will not resign and complete the term.
