Pakistan’s Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa has claimed that his country has successfully defeated terrorism.
Stating that Islamabad was now in a consolidation phase, he said that the armed forces were fully trained and ready for a response to the full spectrum of threats.
“While Pakistan Armed Forces are fully trained and ready for response to full spectrum threat, our achievements in counter terrorism operations are being taken as successful case studies. Pakistan has successfully defeated terrorism and is now in consolidation phase. Such engagements are source of mutual sharing, learning and benefit,” he said here on Thursday.
Gen Bajwa said that the nature and character of war has changed, with direct conflict now becoming a less preferred means of waging war.
According to the military's Inter-Services Public Relations media wing, Gen. Bajwa yesterday visited the Bahadur Ranges near Attock to witness the "Fajr-ul-Sharq 1," Pakistan-Jordan joint exercise.
"Fajr-ul-Sharq 1" is a two-week joint counterterrorism training program that seeks to share the experiences of both armies.
The Army Chief further thanked Jordanian Army and the contingent for their participation in this first special forces collaboration and expressed his desire to continue this engagement.
