Islamabad-Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif has addressed the Parliament regarding the decision of launching a Military operation in North Waziristan by the name “Zarb e Azb”.
He spoke about the negotiations with the militants and the acts of terrorism that had been going hand in hand since the last four and a half months. “We have lost a number of precious lives during the negotiations. Even though we have been trying to negotiate with the militants in a peaceful environment but things did not go as it was expected. After the attack on Karachi Airport we have decided to launch a full-fledged operation against the enemies of Pakistan. It is time we all stand united and firm in this war against terrorism. All factions of the society should back the Pakistan Army Armed forces.” The prime minister asked the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government to assist the government in moving people out of North Waziristan. He further stated, once the menace of terrorism is eliminated Pakistan would become a land of peace and prosperity with proper infrastructure and boost in economy would be seen.
