Pakistan supports Afghan-led peace process, says General Bajwa


Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa said Pakistan supports an Afghan-led and owned peace and reconciliation process.

General Bajwa made the remarks during a meeting with US Central Command chief General Joseph Votel on Monday at the General Headquarters in Rawalpindi.

“Blame games are detrimental to enduring peace,” said Bajwa while referring to rhetoric against Pakistan following recent terrorists attacks in Afghanistan.

He added that Pakistan has conducted operations against terrorists of all “hue and colour” and there are no safe havens in Pakistan which are used against Afghanistan.

Bajwa, during the meeting with Votel, also expressed his commitment to fully cooperate with the US-led Resolute Support Mission in the neighbouring country.

The chief of army staff also emphasised on border security and intelligence sharing mechanisms with Afghanistan.

General Votel appreciated Pakistan’s efforts and sacrifices in the war against terrorism and laid a wrath at the Martyr’s Monument during his visit.

On Sunday, General Bajwa had telephoned and suggested installing a “robust border management mechanism and intelligence cooperation” to restrict the movement of terrorists.
