Adviser urges international community’s unity in efforts to combat terrorism, asks Afghanistan to capitalize on success of Zarb-i-Azb

Responding to a media question regarding the forthcoming NATO Summit in Warsaw, Adviser to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs, Mr. Sartaj Aziz, said that this Summit is taking place under the long shadows of terrorism, turmoil and continuing conflicts. Within the last week alone, we have seen major terrorist attacks in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Turkey. Terrorism could only be defeated with unity and cooperation of the international community.

In Pakistan, operation Zarb-i-Azb in North Waziristan and concerted operations in other parts of the country against terrorists have been very successful and as a result, dividends have started reaching the people of Pakistan. We appreciate acknowledgement of our contributions by the international community. We expect that as we intensify our efforts to facilitate the peace process in Afghanistan, they will also capitalize on the dividends of these counter-terrorism operations to facilitate this process.
