LAHORE: Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal said on Saturday that Pakistan made exceptional gains during the past four years, adding that today the country is peaceful.
The interior minister spoke to media in Lahore, where he also paid tribute to World XI players who came to Pakistan in a bid to revive cricket here.
Ahsan congratulated the area residents over security arrangements and said that soon Karachi will also get security clearance.
“The successful PSL final was the impetus behind the international players’ motivation to come to Pakistan,” he said.
While discussing the gains the country made during the past years, Iqbal said that the backbone of terrorism has been broken, except ‘one or two incidents that happen from across the border’.
Development projects worth billions are in progress in Balochistan, he said.
