ISLAMABAD, Aug 11 (APP): Minister for Defense Production Rana Tanvir Hussain Thursday urged political parties to shun differences and demonstrate unity to defeat terrorism in the country.
Talking to PTV, he said terror related incidents had been
occurring in many countries of the world, however, Pakistan had its own dynamics related to its geographical location.
He said law enforcement agencies were rendering unprecedented sacrifices in war against terrorism and had achieved immense success in operation Zarb-e-Azb and implementation of National Action Plan (NAP).
“There was visible decrease in terror related incidents in the country, due to government’s commitment against terrorism,” he added.
He said the entire nation was united and stood firm on one
point agenda of defeating terrorism.
The minister said huge investment by China in the country under China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) was frustrating our enemies so they were trying to sabotage this project.
He said civil and military leadership were determined to ensure security of the mega project and would utilize all the resources to defeat the nefarious designs of anti-state elements.
Rana Tanvir said operation was being carried out in the country against criminals and elements destroying peace.
Replying to a question, he said Kashmir was the core issue between India and Pakistan and the PML-N government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, was highlighting it at regional and
international forums including United Nations.
To another query about PTI’s protest movement against the government, the minister said their movement did not enjoy public support as people had rejected politics of confrontation .
