Quetta, Jun 7 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani on Monday assured of all possible efforts from the PPP-led Government to eliminate the sense of alienation found among the people of Balochistan.

Addressing the officials of Pakistan army in Quetta, Gilani said he will visit the province's most deprived areas during his next visit and will make sure that discrimination against the Baloch people is eliminated.

"Extremism and terrorism are the main challenges for the government at this point. The terrorists want Pakistan to become a failed state but their designs will be fought through democracy," The Dawn quoted him, as saying.

He further said that the restoration of levies was a provincial issue in which the federal government will not interfere.

Commenting on Pakistan's relations with its neighbours, Gilani said: "Pakistan enjoys peaceful relations with its neighbours, including India...a sovereign Afghanistan is in the interest of Pakistan." (ANI)
