COAS General Qamar Bajwa asks Afghanistan to

RAWALPINDI: Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javaid Bajwa has asked Afghanistan to Do More on curbing terrorism in its land against Pakistan.

Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa said Pakistan was one of the few countries which had borne the brunt of terrorism and made monumental sacrifices to effectively neutralize this menace in its state territories.

The army chief made these remarks while chairing a high level security meeting in the wake of recent spate of terrorism in the country.

The COAS was briefed in detail about the recent incidents and their manifest linkages with terrorist sanctuaries in Afghanistan operating under the patronage of NDS and RAW.

“Since 9/11 Pakistan is one of the few countries which have borne the brunt of terrorism and made monumental sacrifices to effectively neutralize this menace in its state territories,” General Bajwa said.

“Unfortunately our sacrifices against terrorism are not well acknowledged and we are often subjected to demand of ‘Do More’.  

“It was concluded that while counter terrorism efforts by Pakistan continue, it is time now for the other stake holders particularly Afghanistan to ‘Do More’.”

General Bajwa reiterated that “we will continue our efforts to positively contribute towards regional peace & stability and shall not allow use of our territory against any other country.”
