RAWALPINDI: Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Bajwa has expressed serious displeasure and reservations over the issue of the drone strike in Pakistan.

Chief of the Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Wednesday said unilateral actions like drone strike are counterproductive and against spirit of ongoing cooperation and intelligence sharing being diligently undertaken by Pakistan.

According to a statement issued by the army, he was speaking during a visit to Corps Headquarters.

He said  Pakistan considers Afghanistan as a brotherly neighbor and “terrorists are our common enemy”.

The army chief said the threat requires a trust based coordinated response rather than blame game or unwarranted skirmishes.

He said Pakistan Army is capable of taking effective measure if actionable intelligence is shared.

The army chief said: “our focus now is to transform our operational achievements in FATA into enduring peace and stability for which early mainstreaming of FATA through reforms is essential and Pakistan Army fully supports all efforts towards that end”
