Dr. Muhammad Khan (Defense Analyst): 

“Today’s high-level meeting of civil and military leadership in Rawalpindi clearly demonstrates that both the leaderships are on same page and enjoying mutual understanding on key national issues. Indian government is trying to improve its bilateral relations with Iran and Afghanistan in order to isolate Pakistan. United States is also supporting India to be the member of NSG which is a point of concern for Pakistan. Pakistan has always supported peace in the region and especially in Afghanistan that seems difficult because India has been involved in efforts to sabotage Pakistan’s peace efforts. Mulla Mansour was killed in a drone attack which is part of efforts to affect peace dialogue between Afghan government and Taliban.”

Dr. A. Z. Hilali (Senior Analyst): 

“In today’s meeting at the GHQ, the participants dwelt at length on various issues related to external and internal security situation of the country. The participants expressed satisfaction over the achievements in the ongoing Operation Zarb-e-Azb and vowed to continue the fight against terrorism till its logical end. The nation should stand united and support the government and the security forces in this regard. Hostile intelligence agencies and their facilitators should not be allowed to foment trouble inside Pakistan. The government should allocate extra funds for the rehabilitation of IDPs. India’s inclusion in Nuclear Supplier Group could destabilize the balance of power in the region. India wants to keep the neighboring countries under pressure and United States is supporting India in this regard.”
