Earlier today, Prime Minister Imran Khan launched the public version of the country’s first-ever National Security Policy (NSP) 2022-2026.

The policy articulates a citizen-centric framework, placing economic security at its core and seeking a secure and economically resilient Pakistan.

The formulation process of the policy included multiple consultations with official stakeholders and input from over 600 individuals, including national security experts.

“NSP would also help correct the dimension and help the whole government machinery to move in one direction for achieving national security and stability,” the premier said at the launching ceremony.

PM Imran also spoke highly of the armed forces for protecting the people during the war against terror by rendering immense sacrifices which manifested their bravery as well as professional capability.

Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa also lauded the country’s first-ever security policy, saying that it would help ensure the national security.

General Qamar, while informally talking to reporters after today’s ceremony, said that the military security was only one aspect of national security, adding that the formulation of a comprehensive policy covering all aspects of national security is a “great step”.
