KABUL, Afghanistan: The Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed on Tuesday attended the Chiefs of Defence (CHOD) Conference in Kabul wherein he said that collaborative approach and persistence is the answer to all challenges, for which Pakistan is ready to play its part.
The CHOD Conference was also attended by Commander US CENTCOM, Commander Resolute Support Mission (RSM) and Army Chiefs of Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.
The Conference concluded to continue cooperation for peace and stability in the region, said a statement issued by the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR).
While speaking at the occasion, General Qamar Javed Bajwa reiterated that path to regional peace and stability passes through Afghanistan, adding that regions develop as whole, not individual Countries.
The COAS told the participants that Pakistan has eliminated all terrorist sanctuaries from its soil; however, residual signatures of terrorists who take advantage of presence of 2.7 million Afghan refugees and absence of effective border security coordination, are also being traced and targeted through ongoing Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad.
General Bajwa also assured that Pakistani territory is not allowed to be used against any other Country and Pakistan expects the same reciprocity.
