Interior Minister vows Int'l community on cooperation in combating terrorism

ISLAMABAD:Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal has urged the international community to pay attention towards resolving conflicts in order to effectively address the menace of extremism and terrorism.

He was addressing an international conference on counter terrorism in Islamabad today. Voicing concerns over recent wave of terror unleashed by Indian troops in occupied Kashmir, the interior minister said this will not contribute to bringing peace and stability to the region.

He said responsiblity rests with the world community to ensure that the blood and sufferings of any citizen regardless of his faith and ethniticty has equal sanctity. Otherwise, the terrorist outfits will exploit the situation to their advantage.

Ahsan Iqbal said we carried out Zarb-e- Azb like operations from our own resources to flush out terror outfits. He said it is our national resolve to cleanse any sign of terrorism to achieve the objective of peace and development. He said our sixty thousand people became victim of terrorism but this did not deter the resolve of the nation.

He said narrative of peace and development is very clear to the nation.

He however said that the war on terror is not over yet and we have to undertake collaborative efforts to achieve decisive victory.

The Interior Minister said the world publications are declaring Pakistan as an emerging economy in the world. AP/AFP
