Minister for Interior Prof Ahsan Iqbal Thursday said peace and security was indispensable for economic progress of the country.

He was presiding over a high level meeting of civil armed forces officers here. He said peace and development activity would ensure prosperity in the country.

Pakistan has to learn from the successful experiments of developed countries for improving its economy, he added.  He said the menace of terrorism puts negative impact on the economic progress of the country. He said effective steps should be taken for stopping smuggling.

The minister said under China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), not only Pakistan but the whole region would benefit. “We will foil conspiracies against the CPEC. Nobody will be allowed to harm the projects associated with the future of Pakistan.”

During the meeting, the officers briefed the interior minister about performance of civil armed forces. The interior minister emphasized on formulating training programmes on modern lines to increase professional capacities of civil armed forces.

The minister said it was need of the hour that civil armed forces institutions should be equipped with modern technology to further promote peace and security in Pakistan.

He said further steps were needed to provide quality education to children of the martyrs.
