Feb 14, 2018 - 02:14

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Pakistaninfo-icon’s Army Chief Gen. Qamar Bajwa said on Tuesday that “the path to regional peace and stability passes through Afghanistaninfo-icon”, claiming to have eliminated all militant sanctuaries on their soil.

Gen. Bajwa was addressing a meeting “Chiefs of Defense” in Kabul where by US international forces commander in Afghanistan, General John Nicholson, US Central Command Commander General Joseph and the army chiefs of Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan were in attendance.

“However, residual signatures of terrorists who take advantage of presence of 2.7 million Afghan refugees and absence of effective border security coordination are also being traced and targeted through ongoing operation Radd ul Fasaad,” Gen. Bajwa was quoted as saying in the statement issued by the Pakistani army’s media wing, ISPR.

He said that Pakistani territory was not allowed to be used against any other country and Pakistan expected the same in reciprocity.

 “Collaborative approach and persistence is the answer to all challenges, for which Pakistan is ready to play its part,” Gen. Bajwa said. The conference in Kabul concluded with the pledges to continue cooperation for peace and stability in the region.

The high level meeting of military leaders in Kabul comes less than a month later the central capital was rocked by a spate of deadly attacks.
