Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Thursday said good coordination and close cooperation between the civil and military leadership is in the interest of the state.
“Better civil-military relations in Pakistan are always an eyesore for our foes as well as those masquerading as our friends,” the interior minister said while addressing senior military officers at the National Defence University (NDU). He added that the improved relations between the two state organs have delivered results.
The interior minister also said the country is faced with many challenges and that a joint effort is required by all state institutions to overcome them.
“Security today is a multi-pronged, multi-dimensional and a multi-faceted issue,” Nisar added.
“The improved law and order situation is the result of our joint efforts, and every institution of the state has contributed towards this improvement,” said Nisar, saying the enemy has been weakened but not completely eliminated.
“There is now an unholy alliance between our internal and external enemies, which is blatant in its substance,” he concluded.
