Nexus between drug dealers, terrorists will be broken: COAS

Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif said that the nexus between drug dealers, financiers and perpetrators of terrorism will be broken.

Army Chief Gen Raheel Sharif issued the statement while visiting the headquarters of the Anti-Narcotic Force (ANF) where he was given a detailed briefing of the various aspects of ANF's counter drug smuggling operations by Director General (DG) ANF Major General Khawar Hanif.

During the briefing, General Khawar apprised the COAS of the international and regional drug situation and its negative effects on society. He also talked about ANF’s strategy and efforts to ensure a "drug free society", the challenges faced and the Five Years Force Development Plan.

General Raheel said drug peddlers and those involved in its production are as detrimental to national security as terrorists. He added that drug money is being used for the promotion of terrorism and it is therefore important that drug dealers are dealt with iron hands.
"We will break the nexus between drug dealers, financiers and perpetrators of terrorism," said General Raheel. "We will not allow these drug barons to negatively influence and spoil our future generations."
General Raheel appreciated ANF’s endeavors that saw a record number of drug seizures in 2014 and 2015. He also valued the achievements of the force in earning Pakistan the status of a poppy-free nation.
