Resolution of all outstanding matters, including the "core issue" of Jammu and Kashmir, is linked to regional peace and progress, says Pakistan.

The committee expressed grave concern over frequent incidents of cross-border firing by Indian forces over the Line of Control (LoC) and strongly condemned the grave violations of human rights inflicted upon innocent people of Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

During her trip, Janjua had called on President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani, National Security Adviser Mohammad Haneef Atmar, Chief of Afghan spy agency - National Directorate of Security - Mohammad Masoom Stanikzai, former President Hamid Karzai and Hizb-e-Wahdat leader, Ustaad Muhammad Mohaqiq. The meeting continued for about two hours as the prime minister was also briefed about the national security challenges.

Attendees of the NSC meeting chaired by Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi reviewed the country's internal and external security situation and foreign policy imperatives within a regional and global context. The members supported the restoration of quadrilateral dialogue for resolution of the Afghan imbroglio, the sources said. The participants of the meeting were of the view that regional peace and progress was dependent on finding a permanent solution to the Kashmir issue.

They expressed satisfaction over the gains of anti-terrorism operations particularly Raddul Fasaad and Khyber-4, and resolved to continue the operations until terrorism is completely eliminated.

The NSC lauded the zeal, fervour and unity demonstrated by the entire nation during the ongoing 70th Independence Day celebrations.

Attended by Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif, CJCSC Gen Zubair Hayat, army chief Gen Qamar Bajwa and other services chief, among other high level security officials, the CSC meeting reiterated their commitment to clamp down on cross-border fire and support for terrorist outfits stemming from Afghanistan.
