COAS General Qamar Bajwa presses Afghanistan to stop terrorist movements

ISLAMABAD: Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Bajwa on Sunday pressed Afghanistan to cooperate in stopping the to and fro movement of terrorists from across the border, said Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Asif Ghafoor in a statement.

The ISPR DG tweeted that the army chief suggested installing a "robust border management mechanism and intelligence cooperation" to restrict the movement of terrorists.

"Elements inimical to peace in the region are strengthened by blame game," the statement read.

"All safe havens of terrorists have been eliminated from Pakistan," the army chief was quoted as saying.

Gen Bajwa reportedly empathised on the tragic series of events that unrolled on the people of both the brotherly countries over the last few years.

He reiterated Pakistan's cooperation with the Afghan government and its people to eliminate the scourge of terrorism that is affecting peace and destabilising the region.
