Islamabad: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa Friday has said that the military security is one of the aspects of the National Security Policy (NSP), launched by Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan on Friday. 

The army chief said this while in an informal talk with the journalists during the launching ceremony. He said that the national security policy will help safeguarding the national security of the country.

“Formation of a comprehensive policy encompassing all features of the security is a commendable measure,” COAS Bajwa said. He further added that these documents would help ensure national security.

Earlier in the day, PM Imran Khan has signed the public version of the first-ever citizen-centric National Security Policy of Pakistan for the years 2022-2026. The prime minister said that the previous governments had failed to strengthen the country’s economy. National security has been clearly explained in the new policy, he added.

PM Imran said that the government approached International Monetary Fund (IMF) due to deteriorating condition of the country.

The prime minister said, “Inclusive growth means not only to uplift the poor people but also the neglected areas… (In such case) every common man becomes a stakeholder to protect the state… The biggest security is when people stand behind state for its protection”.

The prime minister, who earlier signed the historic document, appreciated the National Security Division for formulating a policy based on the consensus of the whole state and defining the national security in a “right manner”.

First of its kind in Pakistan’s history, the National Security policy articulates a citizen-centric framework, placing economic security at its core and seeking a secure and economically resilient Pakistan. The formulation process of the policy includes multiple consultations with official stakeholders and input from over 600 individuals, including national security experts.

The prime minister said the NSP would also help correct the dimension and help the whole government machinery to move in one direction for achieving national security and stability.

Federal ministers, Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee, all services chiefs, diplomats, senior civil and military officers attended the launching ceremony.
