Islamabad, May 14: Taking a firm stance against the extremists Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani on Thursday, May 14 said that Pakistan will eliminate Taliban from the embattled North Western Frontier Province (NWFP) of the country.

He also assured 'full protection' to the lawmakers and their families of the NWFP after expressing contempt over Taliban who earlier threatened to kill the lawmakers of the region if the offensive against them continued.

If the (parliamentarians) are challenged, it shows that the militants do not accept the government or the Constitution," he said.

He also said that Pakistan will win the war speaking to lawmakers in the capital, Islamabad. He added that the troops in Pakistan were fighting to secure a better future for the country and expressed confidence over Pakistan's victory.
