Commander US Forces in Afghanistan calls on COAS Gen Qamar Bajwa
RAWALPINDI (92 News) – General John W Nicholson, Commander Resolute Support Mission (RSM) and US Forces in Afghanistan, called on Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa at GHQ on Monday.
The two discussed regional security situation and border management issues. The COAS raised concern over the blame game perpetrated by some quarters in Afghanistan and the USA to undermine Pak contribution to war on terror.
He said that it is not a coincidence that this theme was being played at a time when policy review is being undertaken in the USA. “Despite provocations, Pakistan will continue to act positively as we consider defeat of terrorism as a national interest,” the COAS maintained.
Gen Nicholson reiterated his appreciation of the professionalism of Pakistan Army and his admiration for resilience of people of Pakistan.
Both agreed on need for continuous engagement and coordination for peace and stability in the region.
US Ambassador Mr David Hale was also present during the meeting.
