NSC concerned over hostile spy agencies’ activities in country [DailyTimes] 06 Apr, 2016

ISLAMABAD: National Security Committee (NSC) of the federal cabinet on Wednesday expressed its concern over the activities of hostile intelligence agencies working in Pakistan to destabilise the country.
The NSC met on Wednesday under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. The meeting, which was also attended by Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif, also decided to raise the issue of the activities of hostile agencies in Pakistan with the world community. The meeting was briefed on the steps being taken for national security in the country and expressed satisfaction over counter-terrorism efforts of the security institutions which have drawn wide and broad appreciation from the international leadership.
The meeting also discussed at length the deliberations at the recently held nuclear security summit and expressed satisfaction over international acknowledgement of the safety and security standards of Pakistan’s nuclear security regime and the National Command Authority. The armed forces development programme, including the procurement of F16 fighter jets from the US, was also discussed in the meeting, which was also attended by ministers for finance, defence, interior and information, chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee, Chief of Naval Staff, Chief of Air Staff, Director General ISI, national security adviser and other senior officials.
The meeting came as an Afghan intelligence officer plotting terrorist attacks in different parts of Balochistan was arrested by security forces in Chaman. Security personnel recovered a large amount of explosives and bomb-making instruments from the intelligence officer, who was shifted to an undisclosed location for further investigation. Balochistan government spokesman Anwarul Haq Kakar said the arrest of the Afghan intelligence officer was a link in the chain of events that started with the arrest of Kulbhushan Yadav, an officer of Indian spy agency RAW, from Balochistan last month.
During investigation and a later video confession, Yadav revealed that he was a serving officer of the Indian Navy and was operating in Balochistan to facilitate separatist movement at the behest of RAW. Yadav revealed that RAW maintains a network of operatives in Balochistan and Karachi as part of its plan to destabilise Pakistan.More in NationalView allOperation launched in southern PunjabApril 07, 2016ISLAMABAD/LAHORE: Days after the deadliest attack in Lahore’s Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park, the ...
