No more terrorist sanctuaries in Pakistan: Prime Minister

Islamabad, January 12, 2018 (PPI-OT):Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said Pakistan has achieved remarkable success against terrorism and there exists no more sanctuaries of terrorists on the soil of the country. He said while addressing the participants of National Security and War Course here at the National Defence University in Islamabad on Friday.

The Prime Minister said the tide has been turned against terrorists and their capacity to conduct activities has been immensely curtailed. He said the State is fully conscious of challenges relating to national security as it is tackling both internal and external problems. Khaqan Abbasi also said that Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad against terrorists was underway to purge the society from sleeper cells and sympathizers of extremists.

He said there has been a paradigm shift not only from state-centric focus to societal security concerns, but also in the concept and understanding of national security. Congratulating the course graduates, the Prime Minister called upon them to take steps in complimenting the national response against the threats faced by the country.
