Earlier, Director-General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Maj Gen Babar Iftikhar had said that there is “no organized terrorist infrastructure like in the past.”
Babar Iftikhar said that the objective of holding the press conference was to discuss the security of the country as well as the border situation.
He had added that the objective of holding the conference was to present an analysis of the security challenges of the past decade.
“The last 10 years were a challenging time in every aspect for Pakistan.” He added that in 2020 alone, the coronavirus pandemic and locust attacks put Pakistan’s food security and economy in danger.
Moreover, he said that proscribed organizations were being helped to harm Pakistan on the western border.
“Despite all these challenges, the state, institutions, the armed forces and intelligence agencies and most importantly the Pakistani people unitedly faced these challenges,” he said.
Babar added that socioeconomic projects had been launched along with restoring peace in the tribal districts along with the western border.
“Concrete steps were taken to solidify the Pak-Afghan and Pak-Iran borders and “as a result of successful operations against terrorism, the security situation improved considerably,”
