Nation stands united alongside armed forces to fight, recover from flood disaster: PM


Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif visited Pakistan Monument at Shakarparian in Islamabad on Tuesday on the occasion of Defence and Martyrs’ Day.
He laid a floral wreath at Yadgar-e-Shuhada to pay tributes to the valiant soldiers of the armed forces.
In his address on the occasion, the Prime Minister said the whole nation salutes its martyrs and ghazis for their indomitable courage and defiance to defeat every wicked assault on the motherland.
He said our brave soldiers resiliently fought to defend every inch of the country 57 years ago on this very day, when an enemy larger in size, crossed international border in the darkness of night to attack Pakistan.
Alluding to the martyrdom of Army officers and jawans in a recent helicopter crash in Lasbella while helping flood victims of Balochistan, the Prime Minister said our armed forces continue to serve the country with the same resilience and never hesitate to give their life and blood for their motherland.
He said today in the wake of disastrous floods in different parts of the country, the nation once again stands united alongside its armed forces to fight and recover from the disaster.
