Fight Against Terrorism Was a Difficult Phase: Pak Army

RAWALPINDI: Director General (DG) Inter-Service Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor said that the fight against terrorism was a challenging phase for Pakistan.

DG ISPR said despite the difficult circumstances, Pakistan Army established peace in the country under the integrated strategy.

“We want peace in Pakistan and in Afghanistan too,” said Maj-Gen Asif Ghafoor.

Maj-Gen Asif said in an interview that all the operations against terrorism were different, but the Pakistani nation proved to be determined.

“Pakistan has given 100% results in this war and achieved the target by establishing peace in the country. But Afghanistan could not do anything.”

DG ISPR further stated that Pak-Afghan border management is essential for peace. He informed that Pakistan has started fencing its 2600 km border with Afghanistan.

DG ISPR said documents related to border management mechanism have been sent to Afghanistan. Many border issues will be resolved if border mechanism is set.

He added, before Afghan war, there was no terrorism in Pakistan. Pakistan could not be held accountable for the failure of Afghanistan.

Major General Asif Ghafoor affirmed that India played a role in destabilizing Pakistan and the arrest of Indian spy, Kulbhushan Jadhav is a prove that India is involved in terrorism.

He maintained that Pakistan has established peace in the country after making so many sacrifices and “we would not let anything ruin that peace.”

He further added that bringing lasting peace in the country is the mission of Army Chief General Qamar Bajwa.
