Pakistan Army Chief Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa has called on both countries to resolve the long-standing issue of J & K in “a dignified and peaceful manner as per the people’s aspirations”.
“We stand firmly committed to the ideal of mutual respect and peaceful co-existence. It is time to extend a hand of peace in all directions. However, we will not allow anybody or any entity to misinterpret our desire for peace as a sign of weakness,’’ he said during a graduation ceremony at PAF Academy Asghar Khan in Risalpur, Pakistan.
Gen. Bajwa also commended fighter pilots who participated in an aerial skirmish with the Indian Air Force in early 2019.
The outstanding courage and professional excellence displayed by brave air warriors of Pakistan Air Force during Operation Swift Retort is a manifestation of our resolve and capability. The immaculate coordination and harmony displayed by all the three services in operations against the enemies of Pakistan has brought great improvement in the internal security environment,” he said, according to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
