ISLAMABAD: Adviser to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz on Friday called upon the international community to unite in order to jointly combat terrorism.
Talking to media regarding the the upcoming Nato summit, Aziz maintained that the summit is taking place under the the long shadows of terrorism, turmoil and continuing conflicts.
“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,” the adviser remarked.
Answering a question, Aziz maintained that operation Zarb-i-Azb in North Waziristan has benefited people of Pakistan and that Afghanistan should also capitalise on the successes achieved by Pakistan Army in its anti-terror efforts.
“We expect that as we intensify our efforts to facilitate the peace process in Afghanistan, they [Afghans] will also capitalise on the dividends of these counter-terrorism operations to facilitate this process,” Aziz added.
