Pakistani PM calls meeting on anti-terror plan

Islamabad, Dec 29 (IANS) Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has summoned a high-level meeting Tuesday to review progress on the National Action Plan (NAP) to curb terrorism.

The meeting will be attended by Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif, Director General of Inter-Services Intelligence (DG-ISI) General Rizwan Akhtar and other high officials, Dawn online reported.
The prime minister had spent last Saturday in meetings aimed at devising a concerted strategy to ensure the effective implementation of points highlighted by the NAP, which was later agreed upon by all political parties.
The NAP was drafted in the wake of the Dec 16 Peshawar school attack to chalk out a comprehensive strategy to combat terrorism.
A parliamentary committee was formed in this regard which evaluated the post-Peshawar tragedy scenario and necessary laws and amendments in relation to terrorism were discussed.
