The internal security situation, the progress of ongoing counter-terrorism operations and its projection to achieve enduring peace and stability was discussed, ISPR added.

The forum acknowledged contributions and sacrifices of all national stakeholders especially the resilient Pakistanis in rejecting terrorism, bringing about security and stability in the country.
