President Mamnoon Hussain says Pakistan has evolved a comprehensive National Action Plan with the consensus of all stakeholders to eradicate extremism and terrorism.

In an interview with Turkish English Daily Sabah, the President said Pakistan had reviewed laws and improved the judicial process to ensure speedy justice. 

He said government is also reforming the education system, particularly religious education and has taken stronger measures against hate speech.

He said effective efforts are also underway to squeeze the financial resources of terrorists, which required international cooperation as well.

Responding to a question, President said the leadership of Pakistan and Turkey had a shared vision of transforming traditionally cordial ties into a robust economic partnership.

To a query, the President said Pakistan had welcomed the lifting of sanctions on Iran that had opened new avenues for enhancing economic interaction.

He said operationalization of the Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline is the top priority of Islamabad that would help to meet our growing energy needs.
