Pakistan’s unwavering commitment to the global War on Terror has positioned it as a crucial ally in the fight against extremist campaigns. With its armed forces at the forefront, the nation has played a pivotal role in combatting extremism. Recently, British High Commissioner Jane Marriott, who assumed her role in Islamabad, lauded Pakistan’s Army for its substantial contributions and sacrifices in the ongoing war against terrorism.
Jane Marriott acknowledged the significant sacrifices made by Pakistan’s armed forces in the pursuit of maintaining peace both within its borders and across the world.
In a recent conversation with a local news outlet, the envoy highlighted that Pakistan stands as a stalwart on the frontlines of the fight against terrorism. She extended her heartfelt condolences to the families who lost their loved ones in the relentless battle against terrorism.
The envoy expressed her concerns regarding the continued presence of militant organizations, such as the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and the Haqqani Group, within Afghan territory. This persistence of militant activity in the region raises alarm bells and underscores the need for sustained efforts against extremism.
Jane Marriott urged the Afghan Taliban to take decisive actions against these militant groups. She emphasized that these groups pose not only a threat to Pakistan but to the entire global community. By addressing this issue, the Afghan Taliban could contribute significantly to global security and stability.
Beyond security concerns, the envoy also raised her voice in support of Afghan women who have been severely affected by the conflict. With the Afghan government imposing stringent restrictions on women, Marriott underscored the urgency of promoting gender equality and empowering women in the war-torn nation.
