Islamabad: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has stressed the need for national consensus in the critical phase of the ongoing operation against terrorism.

Speaking at a consultative meeting in Islamabad on Wednesday, he said the country can only lead towards development and prosperity through political stability and building national consensus on major issues.

The Prime Minister said the officers and soldiers of Pakistan Army are playing vital role for the success of operation Zarb-e Azb and implementation of National Action Plan and they enjoy complete support of the nation.

He said in the prevailing situation, criticizing the Army is unjustified as it is engaged in efforts to bring peace in the society.

Nawaz Sharif said criticism on Pakistan Army will encourage those elements who are out to destabilize Pakistan and create hurdles in the process of progress and development of the country.

The Prime Minister said coordination and harmony between the army and political leadership has strengthened democracy in the country.

He said this harmony has also been reflected in the decisions of All Parties Conferences in which both the leaderships finalized the national targets and this process must continue with same spirit.
