Straightline News Network

ISLAMABAD, Jan 15: Pakistan Army will continue to play responsible and positive role toward achieving regional peace without any compromise on national security or the defines of the motherland, Chief of Army Staff Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa said on Tuesday.

Addressing the 228th Corps Commanders’ Conference at General Headquarters in Rawalpindi, the Pakistani Army Chief said Pakistan had already made significant contributions for peace and stability in its immediate region. “Pakistan is one of the lead participations with significant contributions towards peace and stability efforts in the region,” Gen. Bajwa was quoted saying in a press release issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations Directorate.

“We shall continue to play our responsible and positive role towards this end without compromising national security and defence of the motherland at whatever cost,” it added. According to ISPR, the Army chief also slammed as “irresponsible rhetoric” recent statements by the Indian military leadership hinting at aggression against Pakistan, noting such commentary could have serious implications for regional peace and stability.

Army chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane last week had said that, if ordered to do so by Parliament, armed forces were ready to retake Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK). ISPR statement was roundly criticized by Pakistan’s Foreign Office as well as the military.
