ISLAMABAD, Jan. 14 (Xinhua) -- Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday launched the public version of the country's first-ever National Security Policy document and called it an "all-encompassing" framework for inclusive development in the country.

Addressing a launching ceremony here, Khan said that this policy roadmap is citizen-centric on the notion that the security of Pakistan rests in the security of its citizens.

The prime minister said that any national security approach must prioritize national cohesion and the prosperity of people, while guaranteeing fundamental rights and social justice without discrimination.

To achieve the vast potential of the citizens, it is necessary for Pakistan to promote delivery-based good governance, he added.

Khan said that the foremost aim of Pakistan's foreign policy and military capability will remain peace and stability in the region and beyond, adding that Pakistan's foreign policy will also focus much more on the pursuance and promotion of economic diplomacy.

On the occasion, Pakistan's National Security Advisor Moeed Yusuf said that this policy framework has taken a broad view of national security as both traditional and non-traditional issues impacted Pakistan's security.

The National Security Policy is centered around economic security, and the geo-strategic and geo-political imperatives also feature prominently to strengthen Pakistan's security and standing in the world, he added.

The National Security Policy was approved by Pakistan's National Security Committee and federal cabinet late December. Enditem
