Military operation is only one way to deal with militants while there are other options that can be tried to tackle terrorism. This was stated by Saudi Ambassador Ali S Awadh Asseri while talking to a private TV channel at the Saudi Embassy Sunday. He said enlightened religious scholars and traditional ljirgas could be involved to seek a solution to the militancy. Development and reforms are other options that could prove effective to stem the tide of terrorism, he added. Saudi Arabia, he said, is always ready to help Pakistan in its efforts to restore peace in the country.
