He pointed out that Pakistan has been facilitating the USA led mission in Afghanistan through air and ground lines of communication for the last sixteen years.

He said terrorists were eliminated from Pakistan through Operation Zarb-e-Azb.

He said waging war against terrorism was a hard phase but the determination of entire nation to uproot the menace of terrorism and through monumental efforts of security agencies all terror networks in the Federally Administrated Tribal Areas (FATA) were dismantled.

Pakistan Army spokesperson has said that there can not be lasting peace in the region unless security and stability is ensured in Afghanistan.

He stressed effective border management with Afghanistan to curb terrorist movement.

"The International Security Assistance Force (Isaf) could never have defeated Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan without Pakistan's support, the DG said when asked about US President Trump's recent tirade against Pakistan ".

"Pakistani authorities must end these lawless attacks against journalists and freedom of expression", Butler said as CPJ urged Pakistan to investigate the attempted abduction Siddiqui and prosecute the perpetrators.

"The Gen Bajwa doctrine will bring a durable peace in the country", he said, adding that cooperation between institutions was vital in the war against terrorism. The US would like Pakistan to come to the table and assist the Trump administration.

We have conveyed to the USA that actionable intelligence sharing can help in advancing the shared goals of defeating terror from the region, he added.

The United States, he said, has only suspended the aid; and the money has not been reallocated.

He said, "Physically the war has ended, however the present stage is hard. They have fought with weapons in their hands", he said in response to a question during an exclusive interview with a private TV channel. In this phase, we are fighting an enemy which is not seen.
