Inter-Services Public Relations DG Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor has said that there cannot be lasting peace in the region unless peace is established in the region.
“Peace has returned to Pakistan and its future is prosperous,” Maj Gen Ghafoor said during an interview with a private news channel on Thursday evening.
“The International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) could never have defeated al Qaeda in Afghanistan without Pakistan’s support,” the DG said when asked about US President Trump’s recent tirade against Pakistan.
In his tweet on January 1, Trump had lashed out Pakistan, accusing the country of “lying and deceit” in return for billions of dollars. He had also accused the country of harbouring terrorists and providing safe havens to them.
Pakistan provided ISAF all the logistic and intelligence support to overcome terrorism in Afghanistan. “Pakistan, with significantly less resources achieved what the security forces in Afghanistan couldn’t with all of their resources,” he added.
