Prime Minister (PM) Shehbaz Sharif on Friday said the federal government would extend maximum support in strengthening the Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) and police of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) to help it better fight terrorism.

In his initial remarks at the apex committee here on the recent Peshawar terrorist incident, he said the province witnessed a fresh spate of terrorist incidents that needed capacity-building of its security departments.

The prime minister emphasized unity among all provinces to jointly fight the menace of terrorism.

He condemned the ongoing campaign on social media against the Peshawar incident, terming it as unfounded criticism.

Shehbaz Sharif vowed that a thorough investigation would be carried out and the culprits behind the terrorist incident would be taken to task.

He expressed solidarity with the families of those who lost their lives in the terrorist incident in Peshawar and announced compensation money of Rs two million for the dead and Rs 0.5 million for the injured, on behalf of the federal government.

The PM recalled that military operations including Zarb-e-Azb and Radd-ul-Fasaad successfully wiped out terrorism in the past. He said the nation would not forget the invaluable sacrifices of the armed forces in this regard.

The prime minister said he had convened an All Parties Conference (APC) on February 7 to discuss ways to overcome the current national challenges.

He mentioned that an invitation had been extended to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to attend the conference.
