ISLAMABAD: The federal government said on Wednesday "the implementation of National Action Plan (NAP) is a shared responsibility and all institutions have to play their role, while remaining within the ambit of the constitution".

This reminder comes a day after the military called for greater civilian cooperation to fight terrorism.

During a Corps Commanders Conference in Rawalpindi on Tuesday, held to review the country's internal security situation, Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif had stressed the need for "complementary governance" for progress in the fight against terrorism.

The government stated that it will continue to pursue the National Action Plan (NAP) and all other initiatives to bring about a positive change in the life of common man.

According to the statement by government's spokesperson, the decisive action taken by the government against extremism and terrorism over the past two years has been widely acknowledged.

“Successful implementation of this strategy was only possible due to broad political consensus achieved by this government, brave action by men and officers of armed forces and coordinated efforts by provincial governments, police, civil armed forces and intelligence agencies”, the statement added.

It further noted that, “The apex judiciary has also extended its full support to this effort. Most importantly, credit goes to the people of Pakistan, who wholeheartedly supported this operation.”

“True to its belief that it is accountable to the people of Pakistan, the government has taken all its decisions in an open and transparent manner, keeping the national interest as its foremost priority.”

“The government's firm commitment to good governance has been the hallmark of all its policies. The initiatives taken by the government are showing visible results in improved law and order situation and vibrant economic development,” the statement concluded.
