“The infrastructure supporting Haqqani network in the tribal region has been dismantled,” added Aziz.

Steinmeier was in Islamabad to discuss matters relating to bilateral and regional interest with particular focus on peace and stability in the region.

The German foreign minister expressed deep respect and gratitude for Pakistan’s efforts in the fight against terrorism and encouraged the government to continue the close collaboration with Afghanistan.

“Pakistan and Afghanistan need to work together for peace and prosperity in the region,” stated the German envoy.

He, however, expressed concern over the military courts which have been established to try terror-related cases.
