Pakistan’s powerful army chief Gen Raheel Sharif has vowed to rid the country from the scourge of terrorism, asserting that “all negative forces” would be scuttled.
“The new year will be the year when terrorism will end,” he said yesterday while addressing tribal elders of Gwadar, Talar and Turbat areas of Makran division.
The new year would be the “year of national solidarity”, he said, adding that the nation would witness the birth of peace and justice in the year.
Gen Sharif, however, stressed the need for the entire nation to extend support to the armed forces in this regard.
“Peace and justice will be ensured across the country with the support of the nation,” he was quoted as saying by the Dawn.
