Islamabad, Sep 12 (IANS) Global policing organisation Interpol has lauded the role of Pakistan’s law enforcing agencies in fighting terrorism, a media report said Monday.
Interpol Secretary-General Ronald K. Noble sent a message to Interior Minister Rehman Malik, thanking the police and security personnel for their constant efforts to fight terrorism on a daily basis.
“I appreciate the sacrifices made by Pakistan during this long war on terror,” Online news agency quoted Noble as saying in the statement.
Malik responded to the message by saying that Pakistan has suffered the most in the last 10 years in the fight against terror.
“We Pakistanis expect that the world recognises our efforts in the war against terror. Pakistan is a victim of terrorism and it has adversely affected the economy,” Malik was quoted as saying.
Interpol - or the International Criminal Police Organisation - is the world’s largest international police organisation, with 188 member countries. It is based in Lyon, France.
Created in 1923, Interpol facilitates cross-border police cooperation, and supports and assists all organisations whose mission is to prevent or combat international crime.
