UK army chief acknowledges Pakistan’s role in fight against terrorism


Secretary-General Nicholas Patrick Carter, General Staff of the British Army, confirmed on Friday the successes of the Pakistani army in the fight against terrorism and the efforts for peace and stability in the region.

During his meeting with General Staff Qamar Javed Bajwa at General Headquarters, the General of the United Kingdom, who arrived here on a two-day official visit, said that his country greatly appreciated the victims of Pakistan as a front-line state against the war on terror.

During the meeting, issues of mutual interest including the strengthening of bilateral security and defense cooperation between the two armies were discussed.

Upon his arrival at the GHQ, he set up a wreath at Yadgar-e-Shuhada. An intelligently issued quota of the Pakistani army presented an honorary guardian to the dignitary. The visitor general later spoke at a national security and war course.

A military official said the visiting authority had been informed about the persistent violations of the armistice by India on the “Line of Control” and the “Working Boundary”, conducted by India in Kashmir and Pakistan’s efforts to bring peace and stability to Afghanistan and the region.
