Federal Cabinet approves citizen-centric National Security Policy

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Following its approval by the National Security Committee (NSC), the Federal Cabinet has also accorded its consent to Pakistan’s first-ever citizen-centric comprehensive National Security Policy, which according to the National Security Adviser Dr. Moeed Yusuf, will help guide sectoral policies for the fulfilment of our national security objectives.


The Cabinet met in Islamabad on Tuesday under the Chairmanship of Prime Minister Imran Khan to discuss the overall political and economic situation of the Country.

In a statement, Dr. Moeed Yusuf termed it a truly historic achievement and said that the National Security Policy with economic security at the core will now be pursued in earnest.

“I would like to thank the civil and military leadership for all their support and input. The policy would not have seen the light of day without the prime minister’s constant leadership and encouragement,” the adviser wrote on Twitter.

The national security adviser further said that I am extremely fortunate to have such a dedicated team at our Strategic Policy Planning Cell (SPPC) and would like to congratulate them and the entire team of the National Security Division (NSD) for their hard work and dedication over the years in bringing the policy to fruition.

Moeed Yusuf said that the success of the policy will lie in its implementation for which a plan has been developed.

The adviser told that a public version of the National Security Policy document will be launched by Prime Minister Imran Khan and released in due course.
