QUETTA: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani visited Command and Staff College Quetta on Friday and stressed upon the army officers to maintain adequate capabilities and readiness to fulfil the tasks assigned.
While addressing the participants of command and staff course, he said that for meaningful and sustainable progress, a nation has to strike the right balance between the requirements of development and defence.
It is the duty of the armed forces to maintain adequate capabilities and readiness to fulfil the tasks assigned, said the army chief.
He said that no army operates in a vacuum, rather it draws upon the support of the nation to conduct its tasks in a manner that it contributes to the fulfilment of national polices, interests and aspirations.
Kayani stressed upon the participants to serve the nation through excellence in profession, dedication and commitment.
Earlier, on arrival in Quetta, the COAS was received by Commander Quetta Corps Lieutenant General Muhammad Alam Khattak.
