    First and foremost, it brings great joy to know that the terrorists were prevented from succeeding in their evil mission. The Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS) deserves all the praise for foiling the attempt to take innocent lives. It is safe to say that they surely saved many lives in the process. We commend their bravery in dismantling terrorists attempt to bring chaos and mayhem in the region. The series of attacks in recent weeks prove that the terrorists remain focused on disrupting our peace efforts in the region. The seriousness of the situation also requires our nations to remain vigilant against those who threaten the safety of our citizens. Our forces are working side by side on both sides of the border, and we have full trust in Pakistani government’s ability to negate the threat of terrorism from the country.
