ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria has on Thursday said that the people of Kashmir are fighting the war of their right to self-determination and the Indian security forces have killed more than 60 innocent Kashmiris during the last one month.

Addressing the weekly news briefing on Thursday, he said that Pakistan is taking action against all the terrorist groups without any distinction.

Commenting on the Pentagon’s decision to withhold 300 million dollars to Pakistan in military aid, Nafees Zakariya said that Pakistan has suffered more than any other country in the war on terror both in terms of human and economic losses, adding that 60,000 people including six thousand security personnel have lost their lives in this war.

The Foreign Office spokesperson said that the operation Zarb-e-Azb has seen a resounding success due to which last bastions of terrorists in the tribal areas have been cleared.


“Pakistan will continue its fight against terrorism with firm resolve and determination and will ensure that the cleared areas do not slide back to the terrorists,” he said.
