PESHAWAR: Additional Secretary Fata Habibullah Khan Tuesday said some international powers are involved in aggravating the law and order situation in the tribal areas.
Talking to Geo News here, Khan said the foreigners are employing the tribesmen for their own interests; but, now the tribesmen have risen against the miscreants, as they know that if the miscreants are not completely wiped out, the tribals will have to incur most of the damage.
Habibullah said the law and order situation has improved in the tribal areas.
Responding a query, Additional Secretary said the solution to problems of tribal areas is a guarantee for the integrity of Pakistan.
Answering a question regarding the presence of Baitullah Mehsud in the tribal areas, Khan said he is not aware in this connection.
