PM, COAS discuss Karachi operation, Sindh affairs

ISLAMABAD: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif called on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday at Prime Minister House, during which the on-going Rangers operation against criminal elements in Karachi and other affairs related to Sindh province were discussed.
Matters related to internal security and the paramilitary forces’ operation against suspected terrorists in Sindh also came under discussion.
General Raheel and Premier Nawaz Sharif agreed to continue the Karachi operation till elimination of the last criminal in the city and not to accept any pressure in this regard.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif reiterated his government’s stance of owning the operation in the mega city which he termed entirely ‘apolitical’ and ‘indiscriminate’.
The army chief and prime minister also agreed that the financial base of miscreants will be destroyed to free the country’s economic hub from the clutches of terrorists and supporters of anti-state elements.
According to the sources, the army chief also apprised the premier of the progress made so far in operation Zarb-i-Azb against militants in North Waziristan tribal region, which entered its last phase last month with the launch of a ground offensive in Shawal Valley.
Gen Raheel Sharif also discussed the security situation at the Line of Control (LoC), Working Boundary and the western boundary of Pakistan with the prime minister.
