RAWALPINDI, Pakistan: The Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif has said that the dialogue process between the Afghan government and the Taliban is the only credible way to achieve lasting peace in the region.
The Afghan peace talks are currently stalled at the request of the Taliban but Pakistan has urged negotiators to stay engaged in the process of peace talks in order to promote a lasting peace in the war-torn country.
“Detractors and spoilers are against peace and prosperity of Afghanistan and the region,” General Raheel said while presiding over the Corps Commander’s conference in Rawalpindi on Tuesday.
In its press release, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said that during the Corps Commander’s conference, the participants dwelt at length on internal and external security situation in the country and reviewed progress of Operation Zarb-e-Azb and ongoing Intelligence-Based Operations in the country.
The forum reviewed the state of readiness and vigil being maintained by troops along the Line of Control (LoC).
“We are fully prepared to respond to entire spectrum of threat,” the COAS said.
The COAS expressed complete satisfaction over noticeable change in the overall security situation of the country.
