COAS Qamar Javed Bajwa visits LoC, lauds troops’ operational readiness
RAWALPINDI (92 News) – Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited troops on Line of Control (LoC) at Mattewala, Munaawar Sector, on Tuesday.
The General Officer Commanding (GOC) briefed the COAS about operational situation.
Lauding operational readiness of the troops, COAS directed that unprovoked Indian Cease Fire Violations (CFVs) be responded effectively.
He said that Pakistan Army soldiers were known for their professional competence, motivation and selfless devotion for defence of their motherland and are backbone of Pakistan Army.
“Indian CFVs have a design. On one side, it is an effort to divert world’s attention from her atrocities against innocent Kashmiris; on the other, it is an attempt to dilute our response against terrorism and militancy. The targeting of civilians along LoC is deliberate and highly reprehensible. We are fully aware of Indian design and her support to terrorism in Pakistan and the region. Indian spy Kulbhushan Yadev is one such evidence of these efforts and his case will be taken to the logical conclusion,” the COAS maintained.
The COAS said that Pakistan Army will do its duty to protect people of Pakistan and Azad Kashmir against all forms of Indian aggression. “We will continue our solidarity with people of Indian Occupied Kashmir who are struggling for their right of self determination,” he said.
Earlier on arrival at LoC, COAS was received by Commander Rawalpindi Corps Lt Gen Nadeem Raza.
Earlier, COAS Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa lauded the response of security forces to the blast in Charsadda
According to a statement, the COAS said first tier response saved many lives and he expressed grief over the loss of lives.
