ISLAMABAD  - US special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan Richard G. Olson appreciated the efforts of Pakistan in the fight against terrorism.

Ambassador Olson said this during meeting his meeting with Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif at GHQ in Rawalpindi on Monday.

According to ISPR, they discussed overall regional security situation with particular reference to situation in Afghanistan.

Pakistan’s military has restored writ of the government in FATA region through its operation Zarb-e-Azb.

The final phase of the operation North Waziristan Agency has cleared vast area including the treacherous Shawal valley and only a remote pocket on Pak-Afghan border is in the process of restoring government writ.

ISPR last week said fighting continues between the security forces and insurgents.
