ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The National Security Advisor Lt General (retd) Nasser Khan Janjua on Tuesday said Pakistan had been successful in defeating terrorism as the nation took a resolve against extremism and stood to regain peace from terrorists.
He stated that Pakistan is (was) on the road of progress and security and economy were very important for the country’s prosperity.
“We are facing a lot of issues. We shall fix everything. We need political stability to correct all of them including rooting out terrorism and extremism,” Nasser Janjua said while addressing a National Conference on Internal Security: Peace & Sustainable Development organized at Pakistan Planning and Management Institute (PPMI) in Islamabad.
The event was attended by the Minister for Interior Ahsan Iqbal apart from diplomats, government representatives, retired armed forces officers and students from across the Country and individuals from public and private entities.
Nasser Janjua said Pakistan had suffered a lot in war on terror both in terms of lives lost and damage to economy but the International Community had not looked upon its sacrifices in that war with a positive attitude.
The security advisor was of the opinion that Pakistan had been successful in defeating the nefarious designs of the enemy and proof of that was that militants laid down their arms in sensitive parts of the Country.
