“Pakistan has the capability to defend itself. Operation Zarb-e-Azb is successfully continuing to eliminate terrorism from the country,” he added.

Aziz said an environment of confidence building has been restored with Kabul, and cooperation with Afghanistan in intelligence sharing and the defence sector has improved.

He said Pakistan would not allow its soil to be used against Afghanistan.
