ISLAMABAD- Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif today said the government has taken concrete measures to address militancy in the country.

Speaking in the Senate, he said Operation Zarb-i-Azb is a fatal blow to militants, adding that it had cramped their designs.

"In our resolve to rid the country of terrorism, we will march further than any of the world powers," he said.

“We will take revenge for the killings of the innocent school children,” he clarified.

Nawaz Sharif said that the government had called on all political parties for the formation of a National Action Plan. He said military courts will actively pursue cases for a limited period of time.
