ISLAMABAD: A day after the military called for greater civilian cooperation to fight terrorism, the government has said implementation of the National Action Plan (NAP) was a shared responsibility, and all institutions have to play their role, while remaining within the ambit of the Constitution.

According to a statement by its spokesperson, the government said its initiatives were showing visible results in the form of improved law and order situation across the country.

The government aims to continue NAP, and all other initiatives to eliminate extremism and terrorism from the country, the statement said.

The government has taken all its decisions in an open and transparent manner, keeping the national interest as its foremost priority, added the statement.

The spokesperson said the government’s firm commitment to good governance had been the hallmark of all its policies.

Army chief General Raheel Sharif called on Tuesday for “governance initiatives” to complement the success of security forces in the ongoing fight against terrorism and extremism.

    It seems army and the ‘government’ are two separate entities? Isn’t army a department under the ministry of defense? Just like Navy and Airforce? One spokesman made a statement and the other spokesman replied. Cant get funnier then that.Recommend
