Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa has said that Kashmir is a disputed territory and that any attempt to challenge the “disputed” status, including any political and military thought related to aggression, will be responded with full national resolve and military might.
Speaking with troops along the Line of Control (LoC) in Puna Sector yesterday, he said that disturbing the strategic stability matrix in South Asia can lead to dire consequences.
Bajwa said that the Pakistan Army is fully “alive” to the threat spectrum and will remain ever ready to perform its part in line with national aspirations.
He expressed hope that the international community will weigh in to ensure the freedom of movement for UNMOGIP (United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan) operations within Indian-administered Kashmir, as ensured by Pakistan in Azad Jammu Kashmir (AJK).
He said that the tragic consequences of ongoing “atrocities” and “inhuman” clampdown inside the territory are reported to the United Nations Security Council and the world at large.
The army chief said that Indian forces can never suppress valiant spirit of Kashmiris who rightfully await plebiscite as per the UN resolution.
Bajwa said that the Kashmiris’ struggle is destined to succeed, regardless of ordeal.
He visited the LoC in Puna Sector to spent the Eid with troops stationed there.
The army chief offered Eid prayers at the frontline and prayed for peace, progress and prosperity for Pakistan in these difficult times, particularly in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
He lauded the troops’ professionalism, operational preparedness, befitting response to Indian ceasefire violations, and morale in the face of evolving challenges.
Bajwa said that performing one’s duty away from home even on such festive occasions is a soldier’s pride and that “we shall continue to do so with utmost commitment and unflinching resolve”.
