Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa, who is on an official visit to Qatar, has said that Pakistan Army greatly values its defence cooperation with the middle-eastern country.

“Pak-Qatar defence cooperation will have positive impact on bilateral relationship as well as on regional security,” the army chief was quoted as saying by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Monday.

Gen Qamar, according to a statement by the military’s media wing, met Qatar’s Minister of Defence Affairs Doctor Khalid Bin Muhammad Al-Attiya.

“The minister appreciated professional standing and performance of Pakistan Army and expressed desire for increased Pakistan-Qatar defence collaboration,” the ISPR said.

The army chief also called on Chief of Staff Qatar Armed Forces Lt Gen Muhammad Bin Ali Al-Ghanim, who acknowledged Pakistan Army’s contributions towards regional peace and stability through its fight against terrorism.
