NationalLack of progress in NAP affecting Zarb-e-Azb: General Raheel

RAWALPINDI, Pakistan: The Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif has said that anti-terror National Action Plan (NAP) is central to achievements of our objectives and its lack of progress is affecting the consolidation phase of Operation Zarb-e-Azb.

“Unless all prongs deliver meaningfully and all inadequacies are addressed, remnants of terrorism would continue to simmer and long term peace and stability would remain a distant dream,” the COAS said while presiding over a high level security meeting held at the army’s general headquarters in Rawalpindi on Friday.

The meeting, which was attended by Principle Staff Officers (PSOs), Director General Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Lt General Rizwan Akhtar and Commander Rawalpindi Corps Lt General Malik Zafar, reviewed the progress of operation Zarb-e-Azb and National Action Plan (NAP). The meeting reaffirmed its resolve to continue to contribute towards full spectrum national security.General Raheel Sharif chairs important security meeting at GHQ

“We have come a long way in fighting this war on Terror and reversing the tide towards eliminating this scourge from our soil,” the army chief said in his remarks at the meeting according to the ISPR.

The COAS said that the whole nation has been standing alongside its security forces. He said that while there has been considerable improvement in security environment and dividends have started to reach masses, any distracting and inciting comments and theories by some quarters are unhelpful and undermining the overall national effort.

The army chief said that synergized National response is the prime requirement at this time to successfully conclude our efforts.

“I salute the people of Pakistan, all security forces and intelligence agencies, for their tireless efforts and sacrifices to bring about peace and stability,” General Raheel Sharif said.
