Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan urged the regional countries to collectively work for promoting good governance and combating challenges faced by the region.
In his welcome address at the SAARC Interior Ministers’ Conference in Islamabad, he said SAARC since its last conference has made major headways to deal with issues of peace, stability, transnational organized crimes and human trafficking.
He expressed the confidence that the regional organization will continue to move forward with the same spirit in order to achieve the goal of peace and stability in the region.
Ch. Nisar pointed out that the South Asian region is faced with a number of daunting challenges and threats like militancy, terrorism, social injustice, corruption and organized crimes.
These are the issues that have hindered our socio economic development. He said the South Asian region shares similar and common borders and they collectively need to create such an environment that is free from violence.
