ISLAMABAD (92 News) - National Security Adviser (NSA) Moeed Yusuf on Friday has said that the situation in Afghanistan is not stable and out of control so Pakistan doesn't have control over things happening there.

Briefing to the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs at the Parliament House, shedding light on the situation in Afghanistan, Yusuf said that security is not possible there without the prevalence of peace. We are worried about the future," he added.

He also questioned the narrative that if there is no peace in Afghanistan, there wouldn't be peace in Pakistan either. "Pakistan will suffer more from the civil war in Afghanistan. Security agencies and intelligence agencies are working diligently. If the Afghan government wants peace, it should improve relations with Pakistan. There is no organized Taliban presence in Gilgit-Baltistan," he said.

He said that the withdrawal of the US forces from Afghanistan is more of a "psychological evacuation" instead of a physical one, adding that Pakistan should make efforts to maintain stability in the war-torn country.

He said that the Pakistani government is devising a strategy for the country's future, adding that the government is planning to connect with the world in terms of development, partnership, and regional peace.

The national security adviser also briefed the forum about the security measures that the government is taking for Pakistan in terms of border security and said that a special visa policy has also been formulated for Afghanistan.  He also spoke about the civil-military coordination in Pakistan and said that problems that arose in the past in this regard are no longer there.
