PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): The Pakistaninfo-icon army chief has blamed some “self-serving quarters” for frustrating efforts to bring peace and stability to Afghanistaninfo-icon.

“Pakistan’s sincere efforts for peace in its war-torn neighbour are being blocked by self-serving quartersthat are not sincere towards Afghanistan,” he said.

Speaking at an event in Rawalpindi on Wednesday, the chief of army staff (COAS) renewed Pakistan’s commitment to better border management with Afghanistan’s help.

A mechanism in this regard could be developed in concert with the Afghan government, Gen. Raheel Sharif said, adding a stable Afghanistan was in Pakistan’s interest.

“I bear upon such elements that Afghanistan is our neighbour. Peace and stability there is vital to Pakistan’s own interest,” he remarked.

A better peace environmentinfo-icon would lead to shared economic progress of both countries, the general hoped, supporting strong relations with all neighbours.

Gen. Raheel Sharif also touted the success of a massive military offensive -- codenamed Operation Zarb-i-Azb -- in the tribal region near the Afghanistan border.

“For the operation to yield its full dividends, all stakeholders and state institutions must play their respective roles with utmost sincerity and commitment,” he suggested.
