KARACHI, Pakistan: Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif on Monday said Pakistan Air Force (PAF) was a key element in the counter-terrorism and lauded the role of its airmen and women in Operation Zarb-e-Azb and other campaigns against terrorists.

Addressing at the firepower demonstration by PAF fighter aircraft at Somiani Range near Karachi, the Prime Minister expressed satisfaction that PAF was working in close coordination with Pakistan Army, which was deployed in some of the most challenging terrains for a modern battlefield.

The Prime Minister said the threats faced by the country were not traditional, however the defence forces were ever-ready and well-trained to handle challenges and protect the national sovereignty.

He said the world acknowledged the contribution of Pakistan towards maintaining peace and appreciated its consistency in domestic and foreign policy.

“Our national resolve and commitment to eliminate the menace of terrorism has earned us a sound repute and respect in international society,” he said.

The Prime Minister said he was immensely pleased to witness the impressive firepower demonstration by the fighter pilots of the PAF and added that the event was a reflection of PAF’s combat fighting, readiness and dedicated teamwork by all ranks.

The Prime Minister extended felicitations to the Chief of the Air Staff for successful completion of the inter-squadron competition, in which the PAF fighter squadrons demonstrated their excellence in weapon delivery standards.
