ISLAMABAD: National Security Adviser (NSA) to Prime Minister Lt Gen   (retd) Nasir Janjua said the world community needed to recognise Pakistan''s sacrifices in war against terrorism as the country suffered the most as compared to other nations.

"Pakistan has suffered a lot in war on terror both in terms of lives lost and damage to economy, but international community has not looked upon our sacrifices in this war with a positive attitude," Nasir complained.

Addressing a seminar on issues of national security here, Janjua was of the opinion that Pakistan had been successful in defeating the nefarious designs of the enemy and proof of that was that militants laid down their arms in sensitive parts of the country in droves.

He was of the view that Pakistan encountered the menace of terrorism only after it started supporting the operations of US-led forces in Afghanistan.

"Pakistan has been battling with security problems for the past many years.

Peace in Afghanistan remains our top priority," he said.

"The overall security situation in Karachi has improved considerably, while conditions in Balochistan are also moving in a positive direction.

People of Balochistan are not only laying down their arms, but they are also chanting `Jeevay Jeevay Pakistan'' as well," he said.
