NationalArmy to go to any extent for Pakistan's security: General Raheel

GILGIT, Pakistan: The Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif Thursday said the Pakistan Army would go to any extent for ensuring the security of the country.

“I can say with complete faith that we are moving in the right direction. We will leave no stone unturned to ensure security of the country,” the COAS said while addressing the concluding session of a two-day seminar on China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project in Gilgit.

“We want to assure the nation that the country and its frontiers are totally safe. Whether it is Modi or RAW or anybody else we fully understand tricks of the enemy.”

The COAS said that terrorism was a very big challenge and Pakistan was the only country which overcame it.

“Many other countries including the Arab world, were badly affected by terrorism and they could not recover from it,” he said.

General Raheel Sharif said that the way the turmoil of terrorism was controlled it could not be done anywhere in the world. “The way our forces took up the challenge, was exemplary.”

The army chief told about the progress made during the operation Zarb-e-Azb.

“Whatever the world thinks, this is war of our survival and we will fight it like this,” he said.

The security of China Pakistan Economic Corridor project would be ensured at all costs, he added.

The COAS said that there was no doubt that nobody was harder working than the people of Gilgit-Baltistan.

Referring to his recent visit to China, he said that the Chinese leadership wanted progress of Gilgit-Baltistan similar to that in China’s city Urumqi and other regions.

“I was impressed to see the progress of Urumqi in a short span of time. I have no doubt that we can make that kind of progress in our region too,” General Raheel Sharif said.
