RAWALPINDI, Pakistan: The Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif on Tuesday emphasized the need for carrying out across the board accountability for the solidarity, integrity and prosperity of Pakistan.
His remarks came when he visited the Signal Regimental Centre in Kohat on Tuesday, according to the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR).
The ISPR said that at an installation ceremony, the COAS pinned the badges of rank on the shoulders of Singnal-in-Chief Major General Sohail Ahmed Zaidi to formally install him Colonel Commandant of Corps of Signal.
Interacting with officers, men and families of Shuhada, the COAS commended the extra ordinary efforts of ranks of signals Corps in providing communication support to Operation Zarb-e-Azb.
General Raheel also appreciated the sacrifices rendered both by men in uniform and civilians alike in defeating the terrorists and dislodging them from their bases.
The COAS further said that ongoing war against terrorism and extremism being fought with the backing of entire nation cannot bring enduring peace and stability unless the menace of corruption is not uprooted. Therefore, he added that across the board accountability is necessary for the solidarity, integrity and prosperity of Pakistan.
The army chief said that Pakistan Armed Forces will fully support every meaningful effort in that direction which would ensure a better future for our next generations.
Earlier, the COAS laid a floral wreath at Yadgar-e-Shuhada and offered Fateha.
