Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif discussed on Thursday the role of hostile foreign intelligence agencies and their collaborators in fomenting instability in the country.

According to the ISPR, in a high-level meeting at the ISI headquarters, the army chief emphasised the need for continued efforts across the country to consolidate gains of Operation Zarb-e-Azb.

“The role of hostile [foreign] intelligence agencies and their collaborators in fomenting instability in Pakistan and undermining Pakistan’s interests was discussed in detail,” the statement added.

“Management of Pak-Afghan border including way forward was also discussed during the meeting.”

The high level huddle also reviewed the internal and external threat spectrum, including terrorists’ network and their linkages.

The prime minister appreciated the efforts and achievements of Pakistan Army and intelligence agencies in achieving major breakthroughs and bringing a noticeable change in the security environment of the country.

Global response needed to defeat terrorism: General Raheel

PM Nawaz said the entire nation was proud of its premier intelligence agency, reiterating that the government and the nation stood behind its armed forces.

Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar and NSA Lt-Gen (retd) Nasser Janjua also attended the meeting.

Earlier during the day, General Raheel said terrorism was a global phenomenon and required a coordinated, global response.

He visited the National Counter Terrorism Center (NCTC) to witness exercise “Eagle Dash-I” between Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Maldives in Pabbi, Nowshera district of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.


Naim | 5 years ago | Reply Sir I m sorry I don't have faith in PMLN government, can our Prime Minister chair a high level meeting?i have my doubts, we don't even know his level of education, there are foreign agencies working in Pakistan, you don't have to go far TTP working for a foreign country, we have sardars in Baluchistan, we have MQM, we have Molana Aziz and we have some politicians in the government and a simple answer who ever is against KALA BAHGH DAM is working for a foreign country. I would even close Qatari Algazeera TV offices in Pakistan soon as.
