National Security Advisor, Dr. Moeed Yusuf Wednesday said that Pakistan condemned terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, including state terrorism against people under illegal occupation.
He said Pakistan had been a victim of terrorism planned, supported and sponsored from across its borders which unfortunately remained a reality even today.
“It has at its roots, actors, who may present themselves as advocates of global cooperation against terrorism, but in reality perpetuate it to create instability in our country and the region, he said while addressing a 16th meeting of the National Security Advisers of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) held in Dushanbe, Tajikistan.
The adviser said “Terrorism cannot and should not be associated with any race, religion, nationality, civilization or ethnic group.”
The NSA said that Pakistan did not wish to be part of any camp politics or geopolitical confrontation, adding “Pakistan’s vision for itself was that of a melting pot for positive global interests.”
On the occasion, the member states including Pakistan and India issued a joint protocol signed by all the NSAs, said a press release.
