Peace dividend linked to mainstreaming of FATA as per public sentiments: COAS
RAWALPINDI (92 News) – Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa presided over the 210th Corps Commanders’ Conference at GHQ on Wednesday.
The forum reviewed evolving geo-strategic environment and security situation of the country. Progress of ongoing Operation Raddul Fasaad and Khushal Balochistan program was also discussed.
The forum acknowledged contributions and sacrifices of all national stakeholders, especially the resilient Pakistanis in rejecting terrorism and bringing about security stability in the country.
The participants discussed lines of stability operations to carry forward the gains of successful kinetic operations.
The COAS directed that the stability and development efforts must trickle down dividends of peace to the public while control of cleared areas is being handed over to civil administration with enhanced capacity. “Key dividend remains linked to mainstreaming of FATA in line with popular public sentiments,” he maintained.
The forum concluded to continue efforts in support of state institutions which are taking Pakistan on a positive trajectory of peace, stability and prosperity.
