RAWALPINDI (92 News) – Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited National Defence University (NDU), Islamabad and addressed participants of National Security and War Course (NSWC)–21 on Wednesday.

Speaking on the occasion, COAS dilated upon the evolving strategic and regional environment. "Pakistan stands for peace within and all around, as it looks forward to acting as a bridge between regions," he said.

Expounding on Pakistan’s support to the Afghan peace process, the COAS said that spoilers of peace in Afghanistan risk regional instability. Expressing resolute support to the people of IIOJ&K, the COAS stressed upon a peaceful and durable solution of Kashmir issue in line with relevant UN resolutions and aspirations of Kashmiri people.

Sharing his vision of the Pakistan Army, COAS underscored the need for continuous evaluation of existing doctrine and corresponding strategy to effectively deal with the evolving threats in various domains.

The COAS termed professionalism, competence and devotion to duty as hallmark of Pakistan Army and emphasised on realistic and futuristic training for maintaining perpetual operational readiness. "Force modernization and induction of advanced technologies are imperative for maintaining qualitative edge over adversary," the COAS remarked. "A well-equipped, well trained and motivated Army having unwavering support of its people can surmount any challenge. The forces that wish to undermine the unbreakable bond between Armed Forces and the nation are bound to fail."

Congratulating the participants on successful completion of their course, the COAS advised them to stay focused on attaining professional excellence while remaining abreast with revolutionary advancements in warfare which are redefining national security.
