Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif approved Saturday a re-invigorated and re-energized national counter-terrorism campaign, Paralel.Az reports citing Xinhua.

Sharif made the decision here while chairing a meeting of the Central Apex Committee on National Action Plan, which decided that operation "Azm-e-Istehkam" (resolve to stability) will integrate multiple lines of efforts to combat the menaces of extremism and terrorism in a comprehensive and decisive manner, the prime minister office said in a statement.

In the political-diplomatic domain, efforts will be intensified to curtail the operational space for terrorists through regional cooperation, said the statement.

The campaign will be complemented by socio-economic measures aimed at addressing genuine concerns of the people and creating an environment that discourages extremist tendencies, it added.
