COAS General Raheel Sharif says Pakistan and Kashmir can’t be separated


ISLAMABAD: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif on Wednesday said that although peace and stability in the region is desirable yet Kashmir and Pakistan is inseparable.


The army chief, while addressing a conference at the National Defence University, said that in spite of longing for peace and stability in region, ‘we want Kashmir’s just resolution in accordance with United Nations resolutions and as per desires of the Kashmiri people to bring prolonged peace in region’.

The chief was of the view that while Pakistan’s enemies are pushing terrorism to stoke sub-conventional battles and undermine the country, ‘we are fully determined, capable of squeezing wicked plans.’


He further said that Pakistan is opposed to the use proxies against other nations and won’t let any country to employ proxies versus Pakistan.

Meanwhile, General Raheel’s statement comes after a spell of same sort of assertions that India is involved in stirring up terrorism in Pakistan. Previously, the military and civilian leadership have expressed solemn reservations at India’s ‘nefarious designs’, with major government officials saying India is striving to disrupt Pakistan’s historical $46 billion agreement with China.

Pakistan Army also asserted that Indian spy agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) is backing terrorism in Pakistan.

Although RAW has quite often been blamed by law-enforcement agencies for being engaged in rebellious activities in Pakistan it’s unusual for a corps commanders’ meeting directly pointing at the hostile intelligence agency.

Pakistan had also rejected remarks by Indian Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Vikas Swarup who said that the whole state of Jammu & Kashmir – including the regions of Gilgit and Baltistan – are an integral part of India.
