Apex committee decides to talk to Afghan government

Ultimate choices including focused actions against prohibited organizations will be made in APC on Tuesday

The National Apex Committee decided to discuss the situation with Afghanistan and carry out focused actions to destroy prohibited organisations.
The National Apex Committee also decided to confront terrorism together during a meeting that was presided over by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and held at Governor House in Peshawar.
The Chief of Army Staff General Asim Munir, the director general of inter-services intelligence (ISI), federal ministers, the chief ministers of Gilgit-Baltistan and four other provinces, the prime minister of Azad Kashmir as well as other senior government and police officials attended the meeting.
The All Parties Conference (APC) where the ultimate choices on this matter will be made will hear the decisions of the meeting before making any final decisions. It was determined during the meeting that discussions would be held with neighboring countries to eradicate terrorism.
It was resolved at the conference that using Afghan territory for terrorist purposes would not be accepted and that Afghan authorities would have to take action against groups that were hostile to Pakistan.
The Apex Committee decided that all law enforcement agencies would participate in the operation and the institutions would also prepare the data of terrorists once more. A joint strategy would be established to make the borders completely safe, while intelligence sharing would be done to dismantle the prohibited Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).
The Prime Minister earlier addressed the Apex Committee stating that on January 30, there was a terrorist attack at the Police Lines Mosque in Peshawar which resulted in the deaths of 85 worshippers.
He said that the economic situation Pakistan is currently facing difficult times and the IMF’s requirements are unfathomable. He stated that in order to combat terrorism, we must remain together. An all-party meeting will be held in Islamabad on Tuesday. All parties have been invited, including those who choose not to shake my hand. If we do not act now, history will not be kind to us.
