QUETTA: Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif on Thursday said that Pakistan determined to confront the global phenomenon of terrorism and extremism.
The Army chief was addressing participants of the Command and Staff College during his day-long visit to Quetta.
“No other military of the world has been able to synergise effects as much as Pakistan Army could do single handedly. I am rightly proud of commanding this dynamic and resolute force,” he said.
Dilating on the effects of Operation Zarb-e-Azb, Gen Sharif explained how the military had transited from hard-core kinetic operations to intelligence-based operations and now combing operations.
Highlighting his vision of conclusion of operations for peace and stability in the country, he said: “We are not there yet, and have more work to do to achieve our final objective of a fully peaceful and prosperous Pakistan.”
The army chief was also scheduled to visit Headquarters of the military’s Southern Command and review operational and security matters during his stay in Quetta.
