Pak-Afghan border fencing to continue

RAWALPINDI: Director General ISPR Maj Gen Babar Iftikhar, while talking to the journalists here on Wed (5th of Jan 2022) informed that 94% work on the erection of fence along Pak-Afghan border has been carried out.

Maintaining that fencing on Pak-Afghan border was not meant to divide people but to secure them and regulate trade activities, he pointed out that blood of Pakistanis had been shed in the erection of this fence, hence it would be completed.

Further speaking about the border security he informed that in order to strengthen it sixty seven new wings of FC Balochistan and FC KP had been established during 2021.

He went on to inform that under the umbrella of Radd-ul-Fasaad Operation 60,000 IBO had been carried out last year that resulted into dismantling terrorist networks. He further told that intelligence agencies had issued 890 threat alerts out of which 70% threats were contained.

Focusing on development projects (including CPEC) he reiterated that Pakistan Army was providing security to ensure that no one succeed in sabotaging them. According to him Armed Forces were GoP’s subservient institution that takes orders from the government. He said there was no need to ponder over the terms with civil government.

He said that no deal was being done with Nawaz Sharif and if anybody says so that person should be asked who is doing the deal and what are the objectives of the said deal.

DG ISPR said that Indian propaganda apropos infiltration was meant to divert attention from atrocities being carried out in IIOJ&K. He assured that despite economic constraints the Armed Forces of Pakistan had the capacity to deal with all external and internal threats.

Speaking about the success of National Action Plan, DG ISPR told that action was taken against 78 terrorist organisations. He said extremism could be contained by continuing the implementation of National Action Plan. | YouTube Channel
