A day after the attack on Bacha Khan University in Charsadda, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said positive results were being achieved due to the continuing military operation against terrorists, Zarb-e-Azb.

“Terrorists are fleeing and are only attacking soft targets. We are achieving positive results in the operation against terrorism,” the premier told world leaders at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Switzerland’s city of Davos on Thursday.

He said the government was working on implementation of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project which, he claimed, will not only bring prosperity in Pakistan but the entire region.

Earlier during the day, Nawaz exchanged views with US Vice President Joe Biden and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani on the sidelines of the WEF regarding the current Afghan situation.

According to a statement, Biden and Ghani condemned the Charsadda terror attack and conveyed their condolences over the incident to the premier.

Both the leaders appreciated the resolve of the Pakistani nation in its war against terrorism and extremism, besides reviewing the peace and reconciliation process in Afghanistan.

US Secretary of State John Kerry, Finance Minister Ishaq Dar and Special Assistant to Prime Minister Tariq Fatemi were also present on the occasion.



Saad | 5 years ago | Reply The "achievements" are just numbers. Not one visual proof has been given to the people regarding the operation. A few foot-soldiers were targeted while the leadership have friends win high places. Just a drama.
ivehadit | 5 years ago | Reply Empty words. Kids are being killed in Pakistan and he says terrorists are on the run. Any PM worth his salt would be back home where his people are suffering.
