Pakistan acting against terrorism not for others but for itself, says COAS


RAWALPINDI: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa met with the US Ambassador David Hale on Thursday.

The meeting took place at Rawalpindi General Headquarters, with matters of mutual interest coming under discussion, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) statement said.  The COAS stated that Pakistan will keep on doing its best, not to appease anyone, but in line with Pakistan’s national interest and national policy, the ISPR stated.

Hale had earlier called on the COAS in August and said that the US values Pakistan’s role in the war against terror and seeks cooperation from Pakistan to resolve the Afghan issue.

General Bajwa, during the meeting, had emphasised that peace in Afghanistan was important for Pakistan like any other country, and Pakistan had done a lot towards that end.
