PM Shehbaz hopes that the NSC’s “major decisions” will boost the economy and reduce terrorism

The National Security Committee (NSC) recently met and made significant decisions to ensure both economic and national security, according to Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Tuesday.

A day after the top civil and military leaders met in the federal capital to discuss how to combat the growing terrorism trend and the worsening economic crisis, the premier made the statement via Twitter.

The prime minister posted on Twitter, saying: “NSC took some significant decisions yesterday after hours of deliberation. There are two that stand out: The State of Pakistan will adopt a policy of “zero tolerance” for terrorists who challenge its authority. Peace cannot be negotiated. Second, the economic roadmap will boost the economy and bring relief to the populace.

Federal cabinet members Ishaq Dar, Bilawal Bhutto, Khawaja Asif, and Rana Sanaullah, as well as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee Gen. Sahir Shamshad Mirza and the heads of all the services’ intelligence agencies, attended the NSC moot, which was presided over by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.

According to an official statement, the NSC reaffirmed its commitment to having zero tolerance for terrorism in Pakistan and its determination to combat any and all violent organizations.

“This will be dealt with using all available state power. The committee decided that Pakistan’s security cannot be compromised and that the full authority of the state will be upheld on all of Pakistan’s territory.

The forum was made aware of the nation’s security situation, with a focus on recent terrorist attacks in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan.

The prime minister emphasized that the federal and provincial governments would take the lead in the fight against terrorism in accordance with the National Action Plan and the National Internal Security Policy, placing a priority on people-centric socio-economic development, while the armed forces would provide resolute deterrence and a secure, enabling environment.

The forum’s conclusion was that no nation would be permitted to harbor terrorists or assist them in their activities, and Pakistan reserved all rights in that regard to protecting its citizens.

The Committee emphasized that true “National Security” was centered on economic security and that, in the absence of self-sufficiency and economic independence, sovereignty or dignity was threatened.

The forum took a comprehensive look at the current economic climate in relation to the problems that Pakistan’s common people, particularly the lower and middle classes, are currently facing.

The finance minister gave a briefing to the forum on the government’s roadmap for economic stability, including the state of its negotiations with international financial institutions, its examination of other financial avenues based on shared interests, and its plans for measures of relief for regular people.

The committee decided to take specific actions to strengthen the economy, such as rationalizing imports and halting hawala and illegal currency outflows.

Improving agricultural productivity and the manufacturing sector will receive special attention in order to ensure food security, import substitution, and employment.

It was decided that maintaining a focus on people-centric economic policies that benefit the average person would be important. Additionally, it was decided to involve all interested parties in order to achieve consensus on a road map and effective economic recovery.

The forum decided to mobilize all resources for their rehabilitation and reconstruction in coordination with the provincial governments and multilateral financial institutions while taking into account the efforts to mitigate the challenges faced by the 33 million flood victims. The Committee also commended the prime minister and the federating units for their ongoing relief efforts.
