Senior officials of the Pak Army had a meeting with Finance Minister, Senator Mohammad Ishaq Dar here on Saturday regarding the establishment of a new security division.

During the meeting progress on various development schemes of Pak Army was discussed. Matters relating to financing and release of funds for the raising of new security division as well as additional 28 security battalions also came under discussion.

Minister Dar said the government attached highest importance to security matters. He assured provision of funds for the new security division and additional battalions and the development schemes being undertaken by Pak Army.

The army launched a massive military operation in 2014 against Taliban militants who are blamed for brazen attacks on government and military installations.

Since then, the military has claimed to kill thousands of militants in air raids in the north and through intelligence-based operations in various parts of the country.

Despite the military crackdown, the Taliban militants continued their attacks, targeting public places and educational institutions.
