The NAP was adopted in the wake of the deadly terror attack that hit an army-run school in Peshawar on December 16, claiming lives of 150 persons mostly children.
The plan includes among others establishment of military courts, special anti-terrorism forces and intensifying operations against militants.
The conference also reviewed Zarb-e-Azb – a full-fledged military operation being conducted against different banned militant outfits in the restive North Waziristan tribal region since June last year – as well as the operation Khyber-1.
Moreover, it also reviewed the security situation at the Line of Control (LoC) and the working boundary.
