Pakistan soil not being used against Afghanistan: COAS
Speaking to a nine-member delegation of Afghan media, the army chief General Qamar Bajwa said that terrorists were the combined enemy of all. General Bajwa said that Pakistan Army had conducted operations against militants and terrorists without discrimination.

"There are no safe havens for terrorists in Pakistan," he said. "Pakistani soil is not being used for terrorist activities in Afghanistan," he added.

He said that efficient and proper border management between Pakistan and Afghanistan was the need of the hour. General Bajwa said that Afghanistan was Pakistan's neighbour and brotherly Islamic country.

This statement of the army chief comes in wake of United States President Donald Trump's harsh statement against Pakistan.

In his speech, Trump accused Pakistan of harbouring terrorists and criminals in safe havens that existed in the country.
