KARACHI: National Security Adviser Dr Moeed Yusuf on Wednesday said that one of the purposes of national security is to make people economically stable.
Speaking during an event organised by the English Speaking Union of Pakistan, Yusuf said that akin to national security, a country’s economic security is also very important.
Shedding light on the country’s geographical importance in the region, Yusuf said: “We should take advantage of our location and try to understand our importance.”
The national security adviser also talked about the situation in Afghanistan and said that since the country is undergoing a crisis at the moment, the world should help it.
“If there is no peace in Afghanistan, it will not only affect Pakistan but the whole world,” Yusuf said, adding that Pakistan has always strived to establish peace and stability in the region.
Yusuf also spoke about India and said that the country’s attitude with its neighbouring states is “inappropriate.”
