Proxy wars should end in South Asia: Olson



While praising the Pakistan Army and its Zarb e Azb operation, US Ambassador Richard Olson also pointed out that there was a need to end proxy wars in South Asia.

“I think the era of proxy war in South Asia should come to an end,” said Ambassador Olson, adding that they should end regardless of who was behind such wars in the region.

The Ambassador praised Zarb e Azb military operation against terrorists.

“We do believe that the operation has had a disruptive effect on terrorists which will benefit in general primarily the Pakistan, its people and Afghanistan as well,” he maintained, stating that the operation’s outcomes have been “very impressive.”
