ISLAMABAD: Hitting back at those who are questioning Pakistan’s credentials in the fight against terrorism, army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Wednesday asked the world to do more and warned that the entire region would be destabilised if Pakistan’s counter-terrorism campaign fails.
In a speech delivered at General Headquarters in Rawalpindi to mark Defence Day, the chief of army staff (COAS) forcefully defended Pakistan’s gains against terrorism while vehemently dismissing allegations of double-crossing anyone.
“If Pakistan has not done enough against terrorism, then no country in the world has done enough,” the army chief insisted while saying that now the time had come for the world to do more.
