SIALKOT: Interior Minister Rehman Malik urged the nation on Saturday to unite against terrorism and militancy.

He was addressing participants of an inauguration ceremony of a newly established passport office at the Sialkot Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI).

The minister said that the government had managed to “control terrorism to a great extent” in Quetta and that the situation “was improving all over Pakistan except Karachi”.

Later, talking to media representatives at the SCCI, Malik said that the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) government was taking effective measures to secure the lives and properties of people across the country. He added that it was also the national obligation of all powers in the state to come forward and play their role in eliminating terrorism and militancy.

The minister said the PPP was doing everything in the larger national interest and would never compromise on this. He assured that the energy crisis would ‘soon be over’ as the country would become self-sufficient in energy and also be able to export energy to other countries.
