COAS Bajwa in Balochistan

RAWALPINDI: Chief of Army Staff Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa said on Monday that Pakistan and Afghanistan will fight their “common enemy” of terrorism together, a statement issued by Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said.
Chairing a high-level security meeting at the General Headquarters (GHQ), he said enhanced security measures taken along the Pak-Afghan border are to fight the common enemy which is “terrorists of all hue and colour”.
The army chief issued directions for more effective coordination between Pakistani and Afghan officials to curb cross-border movement of terrorists.
Gen Bajwa “also welcomed proposals from Afghan authorities to take forward the mutual coordination for result oriented efforts against terrorism”.
Following a spate of terror attacks in which more than 100 people have been killed, Pakistan sealed its border with Afghanistan and authorities later issued shoot-at-sight orders for those found trying to cross over.
