PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Information Minister Mian Iftikhar Hussain on Saturday said that regardless of ethnic identity, those who engaged in terrorist activities were terrorists, DawnNews reported.

He said terrorists had no national affiliations, adding that, the army should eliminate them, adding that, he was not afraid of terrorists and had exposed them.

The minister said the country's previous governments were afraid of speaking to the international community on Pakistan’s terrorism problem.

He said Peshawar was not only celebrating Malala Day on Saturday, it was, in fact, celebrating all those brave men and women who had given sacrifices against the scourge of terrorism.

The minister thanked the international community for standing up for Malala.

He said Pakistan, Afghanistan and the United States would have to fight terrorism through a joint strategy, adding that, whether the decision would be to launch an operation or to engage in talks, the three countries should remain united.
