Nation united in fight against terrorism: Mamnoon Hussain


ISLAMABAD: Our country stands united in the fight against extremism and terrorism and just as Zarb-e-Azb was a success, Raddul Fasaad would also attain its primary objectives.

The President was talking here at the Aiwan-e-Sadr, to a group of Army officials undergoing training at the Command and Staff College, Quetta.

The President lauded the role and sacrifices of armed forces, law enforcement agencies and civil administration in addressing the challenges of lawlessness and terrorism.

He appreciated the role of Pakistan Army in restoring law and order in Balochistan and said despite many challenges Pakistan was now heading towards the right direction.

According to a statement from Aiwan-e-Sadr, the President said “the country is now more stable and strong and many opportunities were knocking on its door.” President Mamnoon Hussain added that China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) has the potential to change the fate of the region for better, and emphasised the need to forge harmony amongst all national institutions and stakeholders for timely completion of development projects.

He said Balochistan would specifically gain from the CPEC project as numerous employment opportunities will be created after the operationalisation of Gwadar Port.

The President noted that the inclusion of Diamer Bhasha Dam project in CPEC would ensure its timely completion and would help overcome water and power shortage in the country.

Mamnoon said that successful holding of Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO) conference in Islamabad was a success of Pakistan’s foreign policy and termed the perception that Pakistan was being isolated, as wrong.

President Mamnoon Hussain said economic policy of Pakistan was heading in the right direction and country’s economy was improving owing to the sound economic policies of the Government.

The President said Pakistan can achieve its desired goals if every individual dispenses his responsibilities efficiently.

He commended the role of Command and Staff College, Quetta in imparting quality and strategic training to officers of Pakistan Army and those from the allied countries.

He also hoped that training received at the premier military institution would prove to be an asset for the officers and enable them utilise their abilities and full potential for the service of the motherland.
