PM Imran Approves First-Ever National Security Policy

The first-ever National Security Policy was approved on Monday by Prime Minister Imran Khan during the 36th meeting of the National Security Committee.

According to the PM Office, Premier Imran termed it a historic moment for the country.

During the meeting, National Security Advisor (NSA) Moeed Yusuf presented the NSP for approval. He highlighted that Pakistan was shifting towards a “Comprehensive National Security Framework” which would ensure the safety, security, and dignity of the citizen of Pakistan.

“To ensure this citizen-centric approach to security, the NSP put economic security at the core, the NSA said. A stronger economy would create additional resources that would, in turn, be judiciously distributed to further bolster military and human security.

The national security advisor informed the participants that the NSP had been created through a seven year-effort carried out by the government. It included extensive consultations among federal government institutions, provinces, academia and the private sector.

NSA Yusuf also highlighted that the National Security Division would review progress in collaboration with relevant ministries and departments.

The meeting was attended by the foreign affairs, defence, information, interior, finance and human rights ministers. Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee, all Services Chiefs, National Security Advisor, senior civil and military officers were also in attendance.
