India’s aggressive posture is a threat to regional peace: Gen Raheel
RAWALPINDI (92 News) – Former Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif has on Tuesday said that the challenges facing the country have not ended yet and the National Action Plan (NAP) needs to be completely implemented.
Addressing the Change of Command ceremony at GHQ, outgoing COAS Gen Raheel Sharif said that his every decision was motivated by national interests and priorities.
He said that it is need of the hour for the nation and the institutions to work in harmony towards off external threats, adding that for this purpose, internal weaknesses including criminality, extremism and corruption needs to be eradicated.
The former COAS said: “India’s aggressive posture is a serious threat to the regional peace and security. He warned that it would be dangerous to construe Pakistan’s policy of restraint as its weakness.”
“There can’t be durable peace and progress in South Asia without resolution of the Kashmir dispute, he said, adding that this requires special attention of the international community.”
General Raheel said he believed in stability and supremacy of institutions. It was his efforts that all institutions work together for security and prosperity of the country.
He thanked the entire nation, armed forces, Pakistan Rangers, Levies, security agencies and police for fully backing and supporting the mission to defend and secure the motherland.
Commenting on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project, the former COAS gave a message to enemy elements to leave the conspiracies behind and joing the project.
