Pak-Afghan border: COAS reiterates to employ all resources for country defense
Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa says Pakistan Army shall employ all resources required for defence of the motherland and security of the peace-loving Pakistani tribes.
He was talking to troops at Suran and Kalaya during his visit to Pak-Afghan border areas in Mohmand and Orakzai Agency on Saturday.
The Army Chief said he is proud of the great sacrifices rendered by the security forces and people of Pakistan in their effort to purge the country from fasaadis.
He said that fencing on Pak-Afghan border has been started and Bajaur and Mohmand agencies being high threat zones are first priority in this regard.
The Army Chief said additional technical surveillance means are also being deployed along the border besides regular air surveillance.
He said a better managed, secured and peaceful border is in mutual interest of Pakistan and Afghanistan, which have rendered phenomenal sacrifices in war against terrorism.
The Army Chief said that mainstreaming of FATA is in the best national interest and development works are also being implemented expeditiously to bring enduring peace and stability in the area.
Earlier, he was received by Commander Peshawar Corps Lieutenant General Nazir Ahmed Butt.
