LAHORE (92 News) – Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif has said that their fight against terrorism is not for today, but to secure the future.

Addressing the officials at Command and Staff College, Quetta on Thursday, he said that they could not alone fight against terrorism.

He said that only a secure Pakistan can be a prosperous Pakistan.

“Wars are not fought by armies alone; rather it requires the effort of entire nation,” he maintained.

COAS General Raheel Sharif said: “Our security threats are complex, multidimensional and hybrid in character. Traditional response mechanisms are not relevant anymore.”


He said that achievements in the Zarb-e-Azb operation have created a space for a decisive surge against terrorists in urban areas and environment is getting ripe for political optimization towards a meaningful and sustainable closure.

Earlier on arrival at Quetta, COAS was received by Commander Southern Command Lt-Gen Naseer Khan Janjua.
