WASHINGTON (APP) - Asserting that Pakistan would not allow a handful of extremists to impose their agenda on his South Asian nation, Pakistans Ambassador in Washington Husain Haqqani has voiced the hope for continued US engagement towards regional stability. We are sure lessons have been learned and there will be no walking away this time, he told a Washington newspaper. He was asked in an interview if Pakistan was concerned about the possibility of the US and Nato pulling out of neighbouring conflict-torn Afghanistan irrespective of the outcome of the ongoing fight against Al-Qaeda. We hope that the US and the international community will continue their cooperation to fight terrorism and work together to achieve peace and stability in Afghanistan, Ambassador Haqqani said in an interview with The Washington Examiner. Islamabad, he underlined, remains firm in its resolve to get rid of terrorists. Our message to the US is that Pakistan is fully committed to fighting and defeating extremism and terrorists, and the fight against them would continue till their eradication, he replied when questioned about Pakistans message to new US commander for Afghanistan Gen David Petraeus. We believe that a handful of militants and extremists would never be allowed to impose their vicious agenda on the people of Pakistan, he added. Pakistan will continue to work with the US and Afghanistan until the terrorists are defeated, the envoy said. Haqqani also highlighted the countrys anti-terror efforts, saying Pakistani security forces have achieved tremendous successes in its military operations in Swat, Malakand division and in the tribal areas. Our people and security personnel have paid a huge price, in terms of human lives, in this fight. Limited numbers of military operations are being carried out against terrorists hiding in the North Waziristan agency. We have set up military posts in strategic areas, he said.
