MUZAFFARABAD: Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa has warned external forces not to under-estimate Pakistan army and said any LoC violation will be responded with full force in the most effective manner.
“Indian aggressive posture solely aims to divert attention of the world from atrocities being committed by their troops in Indian occupied Kashmir,” Bajwa said during his visit to the LoC on Friday.
According to Pakistan army’s media wing, the army chief said that core issue of Kashmir will have to be resolved between the two countries in the line with UN resolutions and aspirations of the people of Kashmir, for lasting peace in the region.
He was later given a detailed briefing about prevailing security situation at LoC in view of recent violations and escalation by Indian forces.
Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) maintained that General Bajwa appreciated troops for their operational readiness and befitting response given to unprovoked Indian firing in violation of cease fire agreement.
“The COAS directed the troops to keep highest level of vigil at all times,” it said.
Lt Gen Malik Zafar Iqbal, Commander of 10 Corps received COAS on arrival at Corps headquarter and later accompanied him during his visit to LoC.
