RAWALPINDI (92 News) – Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa has expressed the resolve to take the war against terrorism to logical conclusion.

Addressing the main ceremony on Defence Day at GHQ, he said: “The international powers should not hold us responsible for their failures if they cannot support us.”

The COAS said that the Pak Army stands by the nation.

He said that Pakistan will continue political, diplomatic and moral support to the Kashmiris.

Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa said that Pakistan has done enough now it was time for the world to do more. “If Pakistan has not done enough in war against terrorism, then no country in the world has done so,” he added.

He said that Islam clearly states jihad to be the state’s responsibility.

About Afghanistan, COAS said Pakistan has tried to support its neighbouring country beyond its means. “But we cannot fight the Afghan war in Pakistan.”

He said that the country wants respect and confidence from the US, not its aid.

Gen Qamar Bajwa also urged the international community to take steps for the Muslims in Myanmar.

The event started with children presenting a tableau. Later, the crowd stood up to the national anthem. A guard of honour was also presented by smartly turned out contingent of Pakistan Army.
