ISLAMABAD (NNI) - Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has said that Pakistan is fighting terrorism together with the United States and it is a combined effort, which means if Pakistan fails, the US will also fail. Terming terrorism a global fight, with Pakistan on the frontline, the Prime Minister said the country has made a lot of sacrifices - not just in terms of casualties but also in terms of economy. The Prime Minister expressed hope that by now the US is convinced that we are part of the solution to terrorism, not part of the problem. Terrorism has neither boundaries nor ideology, it is meant only to destabilise and it has no support in Pakistan, Gilani said. Because it (terrorism) is a foreign agenda and is sponsored from abroad. Drug money is behind terrorism in Pakistan, the quoted the Prime Minister as saying. As for American drone strikes in the Pakistani territory, the Prime Minister said that Islamabad has been successful in separating local tribes from militants. The local tribes now support the central government, but drone attacks killing innocent civilians on the ground help create sympathy for terrorists among the locals, PM Gilani added. It is not in favour of either military or political strategy. They make our work difficult, he pointed out, adding that Pakistan can do the job itself. Answering a question about extending American military presence in the country, Gilani insisted that there should be respect for the sovereignty and integrity of Pakistan. Pakistan and Afghanistan are closely cooperating in their joint fight against militants, but the border between the countries is too long and proper security is something to be desired, largely because Pakistan has been accepting refugees from Afghanistan for the last 30 years. The PM said relations between the border districts of the two countries are now too complicated. About conspiracy theories, the PM said Pakistans nuclear programme is very secure and recognised by the international community and the countrys authorities intend to keep it that way. Russia and Pakistan have had strategic relations since 1948 and despite ups and downs after the 9/11 tragedy, both countries have a common strategy in fighting extremism and terrorism, he added. Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani on Saturday agreed to establish two-tier Afghanistan-Pakistan Joint Commission for facilitating and promoting reconciliation and peace. The commission reflects a positive change in bilateral relations as now Afghan leadership recognised Islamabads role in the reconciliation process when the American troops are set to begin withdrawal of its forces in July and Afghan forces will gradually take over the security responsibility.
