Prime Minister of Pakistan, Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, said on Wednesday that terrorist networks in Pakistan have been destroyed. Pakistan has been plagued by terrorism for quite some time now and in order to eliminate militant networks within the country, Pakistan Army under authorization from the government launched Operation Zarb-e-Azb. The sole purpose of this ongoing operation is to annihilate terrorist networks within Pakistan and has been going on successfully for over a year. Terrorism inside the country has decreased by a whopping 70%, and just today, PM announced that the terrorist networks have been destroyed. While addressing the Pakistan-American community in Washington he said,
Pakistan have many sacrifices in the war against terrorism and the government is committed to root out terrorism from the country.
In the battle against terrorism, Pakistan has been greatly appreciated by the international community and the locals. Pakistan’s army is enjoying immense praise. While the terrorist networks in Pakistan have been destroyed, terrorism still exists within the country although the frequency of attacks have lowered significantly. Destruction of terrorist networks above all means chaos for the militants in Pakistan, which in turn means that chances of planned, large-scale terror attacks have gone down considerably.
Pakistan has been haunted by the energy crisis and terrorism, and while Pakistan has constantly held responsible for several terror acts around the world, it is Pakistan that is pursuing the biggest battle against it. As far as the energy crisis in Pakistan is concerned, several projects are in the pipeline, especially under the CPEC umbrella. According to reports, load-shedding will end by 2018, and Pakistan should have surplus energy, enough to even export. Efforts actively continue in order to end the energy crisis and terrorism within the country and hopefully, the efforts will prove worthwhile. For peace in the region, the two major issues that prevail are tensions at the border with India and Afghanistan. With the Prime Minister in the States, these two issues will be under critical discussions, with focus on the Kashmir issue, as it is vital to for peace between India and Pakistan. PM’s visit to the United States, in those regards, is absolutely crucial.You can follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+ for more updates.
