ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Mohammad Nawaz Sharif is likely to call the meeting of top civil and military leadership in coming days to review the strategy to deal with the growing incidents of terrorism across the country.

The major incidents of terrorism in recent past have exposed some major flaws in the working of the law-enforcement agencies as well as lack of coordination and information sharing among the intelligence agencies, so the political and military leadership of the country would sit together in a next few days to discuss all these issues and its quick remedies, a source in ruling Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) informed.

When contacted, the officials at Prime Minister’s Office said that so far the meeting was not scheduled, adding that such meetings could be called even at one-day notice, which remained the practice in the past as well.

Sources in the government said that the appropriate forum for civil and military leadership meeting is Cabinet Committee on National Security (CCNS), which has not been summoned for the past several months and a new term of high-level security meeting was coined when both the civil and military leadership used to meet and discuss the security related issues.

Sources further said that after the Safora Chorangi carnage, which had shaken the whole nation after the Peshawar school killings, Prime Minister Mohammad Nawaz Sharif wanted to plug the loopholes in the working of the security apparatus of the country.

He had talked to Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif on the issue during his Karachi visit after Safora Chorangi carnage where while chairing high-level meeting it was decided that besides rangers, army would be called in the port city for maintenance of law and order.

Sources in government informed that Premier Sharif was informed in that meeting that foreign elements were active in Karachi and some other parts of the country to create unrest in the country with obvious target to hamper expected huge economic activity going to take place in the country in coming years.

It was further decided in the Karachi meeting that in the next few days Chief of Army Staff, DG ISI and other high-ranking officials would give a comprehensive briefing on national security, including provision of solid evidence of foreign elements’ involvement in the disruptive activities in the country, to the Prime Minister.

It is expected that some major structural changes would be made, including activation of National Counter-Terrorism Authority (NACTA) and making of National Internal Security Division established under the head of Advisor to PM on National Security and Foreign Affairs more efficient and effective.
