Pakistan, Afghanistan must explore ways for regional peace: COAS Bajwa
Last Updated at: 4 weeks ago

Rawalpindi: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa has said that Pakistan and Afghanistan must explore ways to steer peace in the region, said a statement issued by Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the military’s public relations wing.

COAS Bajwa said this in a meeting with an Afghan delegation led by Afghan National Security Adviser Mohammad Hanif Atmar, said ISPR.

The delegation included Head of NDS Mohammad Masoom Stanekzai, Interior Minister of Afghanistan Wais Ahmad Barmak, Ambassador of Afghanistan to Pakistan Omar Zakhilwal and other Afghan officials.

The Pakistani side was also joined by Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua.

General Bajwa said both Pakistan and Afghanistan have suffered heavily due to prolonged conflict and must together explore ways to usher peace in the region by defeating the common enemy.“We must begin with the trust that neither covets an inch of the other’s territory nor is letting its land being used against the other. Suspicions will only fuel negativity and facilitate detractors,” the COAS added.

COAS accepted the invitation given by the Afghan delegation on behalf of Afghan President Ashraf Ghani to visit Kabul.

The army’s media wing said that the talks between two sides focused on the operationalisation of recently concluded Afghan Pakistan Action Plan for Peace and Stability (APAPPS).“The Afghan side was appreciative of Pakistan’s initiative in preparation of the framework document to improve cooperation and coordination between the two brotherly Countries on a host of confidence-building and substantive measures,” said the statement released after the meeting.

The two sides agreed to fast-track the formulation of working groups, especially on bilateral security cooperation and to undertake measures that would assist both sides in the reduction of violence at the hands of terrorists.
