It’s time for world powers to do more in terror war: COAS
September 07, 2017

PESHAWAR, 7 September: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Wednesday asked the world powers to refrain from blaming Pakistan for their failures if they cannot strengthen the hands of Pakistan in the war against militancy.

Addressing the main Defence Day ceremony at the General Headquarters in Rawalpindi, the army chief said despite offering countless sacrifices in the war against terrorism, it has been said that Pakistan was not taking indiscriminate action against all militant groups. He said if Pakistan’s efforts in this regard are not enough, then the efforts of other countries are negligible. He said the world community should do more now instead of asking Pakistan to do more.

The COAS said the nation’s sentiments about relations with the US are quite evident. He said Pakistan wants honour, trust and recognition of its sacrifices instead of aid. He said Pakistan will support every step of the US and NATO aimed for bringing stability in the region, especially in Afghanistan. However, he said, Pakistan cannot fight Afghanistan’s war in its own country. He said Pakistan is determined to protect is 2,600 kilometres long border with Afghanistan and in this regard fencing of the border and establishment of 900 more check posts is underway.

The statement of General Bajwa came after US President Donald Trump few days ago accused Pakistan of providing safe havens to terrorists fighting against the US forces in Afghanistan.
