Pakistan to not allow any militant group to operate in country
Prime Minister Imran Khan has reiterated Pakistan’s commitment not to allow any militant group operate in the country or use its territory for any militant activity within or outside Pakistan.
During the meeting, the premier reiterated that Pakistan is firmly committed to not allow any militant group to operate in the country or use its territory for any militant activity within or outside Pakistan.
The committee decided to constitute Expert Working Groups to ensure seamless coordination and implementation of every aspect of the NAP.
PM Imran Khan recounted the various legislative and administrative measures taken by his government to deal with militancy and to combat terror financing, money laundering and hawala-hundi.
He stressed upon the need for continued and sustained on-ground efforts to take the struggle against these crimes to a conclusive end.
“Pakistan has suffered immensely, both in terms of human lives as well as material losses, due to the menace of terrorism. As a result of the immense sacrifices rendered by the armed forces, intelligence agencies, police, and other law enforcement agencies,” he mentioned.
“We have made significant progress towards combating terrorism and ensuring peace,” Imran Khan added. He asserted that the PTI-led government remains committed to removing all impediments in the implementation of NAP.
