PM Nawaz vows to make Pakistan secure for every religion, ethnicity
ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday expressed the determination to make Pakistan secure for every ethnicity and religion.

Chairing a high-level meeting on internal security and the National Action Plan in Islamabad, he said the country was on the right track and would enable every citizen to reap the benefits of a secure, stable and prosperous Pakistan.

The meeting discussed at length the internal security situation of the country and different aspects of the National Action Plan.

Nawaz Sharif lauded the performance of Law Enforcement Agencies in maintaining peace and security in the country. He said terrorists and extremists elements were retreating from the country due to the countless sacrifices rendered by our valiant Law Enforcement Agencies, unflinching resolve of the entire nation and efforts of the federal and provincial governments.

Nawaz Sharif said extremist ideology was a global threat. Pakistan, being a front-line state in the war on terror, has confronted the blow back of terrorists for several years, he added. No other country has suffered to the extent Pakistan had in the fight against terrorism and extremism, he added.

He said the world acknowledged that the overall security situation of the country had significantly improved due to the ongoing Operation Zarb-e-Azb.

The Prime Minister said that the federal government will facilitate the provincial governments by effective coordination and intelligence sharing through the federal agencies in dealing with internal security issues.
