LAHORE: Defence Minister, Ahmed Mukhtar Saturday said Pak Army has no anti-missile system to counter missiles attacks by U.S. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (in tribal areas) and Pakistan would have acted if it had been properly geared in this regard.
Addressing here at Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Chaudhry Ahmed Mukhtar said war on terror is Pakistanís own battle and it is being fought against an unknown enemy.
He said trafficking of arms is the largest trade of the world.
The Defence Minister pointed out that eradication of inflation and power load-shedding is the foremost priority of the government. Positive outcomes will be visible in this regard in the next six months, he added.
He said relief package for textile will be announced soon and observed that all the sectors will benefit if the international oil prices remain stable at the current level, he said.
