Rawalpindi (Staff Report): Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa reiterated that Pakistan has undertaken operations against terrorists of all hue and colour and there are no safe heavens inside Pakistan which are being used against Afghanistan, said an ISPR press release.

During a meeting with a nine-member Afghan media delegation at GHQ on Friday, the army chief said Afghanistan and Pakistan were brotherly neighbours and a coordinated response against terrorists was needed instead of blame-game to counter their common enemy.

General Bajwa emphasised the need for effective border management along Pak-Afghan border and said Pakistan has taken effective measures on its side, including fencing and establishment of new border forts and posts.

The delegation of Afghan media personnel thanked the COAS for his time and candid discussion. They acknowledged that such interactions were useful to understand each other and they are carrying back home a facts-based positivity through this tour, the ISPR statement added.

The delegation is on a week-long visit to Pakistan in coordination with ISPR.
