Statement by ISPR on the recent attacks

The latest acts of terrorism in Pakistan, particularly those that occurred in Gwadar, Turbat, and Besham, are heinous crimes intended to undermine the country’s internal security framework. The military forces successfully prevented the first two assaults, but the most recent incident at Besham claimed the lives of six innocent people, five of whom were Chinese. The whole country categorically denounces this heinous crime and is in sympathy with our Chinese brethren.
Targeted intentionally to impede our growth and cause strife between Pakistan and its strategic friends and partners, most notably China, are key projects and sensitive locations essential to Pakistan’s economic prosperity and the welfare of its people.

Motivated by self-interest, certain international actors actively support and encourage terrorism in Pakistan. Even with their seeming innocence, these people are consistently revealed to be promoters of terrorism. Such horrific acts of violence against foreign nationals, defence personnel, and innocent bystanders will not weaken the commitment of the Pakistani people, security agencies, and allies to eradicate the threat of terrorism from our nation. Being on the front lines of the war on terror, Pakistan is arguably the only country that is taking on the global terrorist network head-on with complete commitment and unwavering tenacity.

As long as the resilient nation and our unshakable ally China stand by us, we will make sure that everyone who has helped terrorists, whether directly or indirectly, is held accountable and gets their just desserts. Together, we can overcome evil and misfortune.

INSHALLAH
