ISLAMABAD - Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Sherry Rehman has said that President Zardari will approve the Nizam-e-Adal Regulation after the restoration of peace in Swat region. In a press release issued here Monday, the Minister while responding to media queries on the Malakand Accord said the proposed Nizam-e-Adal Regulation would bring speedy justice at the doorstep of the common man. This regulation would also meet the demand of the people for the establishment of an appellate forum in their own area, she added. Sherry stressed that the deal should not be seen as a "concession" to the militants. "It is in no way a sign of the state's weakness". The will of the population of the Swat region was at the centre of all efforts and it should be taken into account while debating the merits of this agreement, she concluded. Our Monitoring Desk adds: "President has neither singed any law so far nor he will till the restoration of durable peace in the region," Sherry said. The agreement has been signed between provincial government and the local elders of Malakand agency, which aimed at restoring peace and rule of law in the region, she added. She said the proposed regulation would comprise laws already written in Constitution of the country. PPI adds: President Asif Ali Zardari Monday said the government was pursuing a three-pronged strategy to counter terrorism. In an interview with Chinese journalists at President's House, Zardari who leaves on February 20 on four-day state visit to China said the fight could not be won with guns and bombs only and it must be multi-faceted. The government is pursuing a three-pronged strategy to counter terrorism. Pakistan is taking political, economic and military measures to find short term as well as long-term solution of the problem, he added. Zardari said the war against terrorism was becoming difficult because of Pakistan's limited resources. He said terrorism was a challenge to the society, way of life and state of Pakistan and it was a situation country had to face. Referring to the situation in north western and tribal regions where the security forces have been fighting militants, President said, "Life of the people is not normal. So first responsibility for the government is peace and life of human and people in that region." In past, the capability has not been properly enhanced in civil side to take on this challenge. Pakistan needed civilian forces and police forces to be strong enough,'' he stated. Zardari said Pakistan was upgrading its resources and forces in the fight against terrorism. "We intend to make sure that all such challenges are minimized at the earliest." Abrar Saeed adds: Earlier, talking to media after attending the tripartite Labour Conference here on Monday, Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has expressed the hope that the new arrangement being made by the NWFP government to deal with Swat unrest would result in bringing normalcy to the region. He said that the three-pronged strategy adopted by the government would yield positive results and help restore peace in the disturbed areas. He strongly condemned drone attacks and termed it an infringement on the country's sovereignty. Dispelling the impression of any sort of understanding with United States on unabated drone attacks inside Pakistani territory, the Prime Minister termed these attacks counterproductive in the ongoing going war on terror. US must review its policy as such attacks were detrimental to the relations of both countries, PM added. He said the day he took oath and assumed his office, he was absolutely sure on one thing and that was elimination of terrorism and extremism in true letter and spirit. Terming his meeting with Punjab CM as a routine practice, the Premier said that the issue of lawyers' long march and the participation of PML-N in it was not figured in the meeting, as according to him the PPP government considered the participation of PML-N in it or otherwise was the internal affair of N-League. To a question about the restoration of the deposed Chief Justice of Pakistan, he said that only Parliament was the competent forum to decide about the restoration of the deposed chief justice. Answering question regarding forthcoming Senate elections, he said every party should have its due right in the Upper House that was essential for ensuring good governance and a sustainable democratic system. The Prime Minister to a question regarding repealing of 17th Amendment in the Constitution said that it was the part of the PPP manifesto and the party would not deviate from the policy of its Shaheed leader and would go about removing distortions introduced in the Constitution under the dictatorial rule.
