He said, "We are clear we have to deal with all elements that are challenging the writ of the government and making Pakistan or other places insecure." He also said, "We don't want our soil, our national territory, to be used against anyone."
"No more differentiating between good terrorists and bad terrorists. They've created havoc, made our environment insecure, and wherever they are, we'll take them on," he added.
When asked if this would include Mullah Omar and his Quetta shura, which runs the Afghan Taliban, the minister replied, "Absolutely, we'll be taking them on."
