“Pakistan wants better relations with all its neighbours, including Afghanistan and India, but it will not compromise on its honour and sovereignty,” said Gen Raheel.
The COAS was addressing a dinner hosted in his honour by the Pakistan High Commissioner to the UK, Ibne Abbas, where General Raheel expressed about relations with India.
Army chief expressed his hope to eradicate the threat of terrorism form the soil of the country and he vowed to complete the military operation Zarb-e-Azb against terrorists at all costs.
“Pakistan Army successfully conducted around 10,000 intelligence-based operations across the country, killing terrorists and their abettors,” said the army chief. Moreover, Army chief expressed that the mega-project of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) would bring about economic opulence as well as open ways of foreign investment in the country.
“Britain is our ally and we want good relations with it”, said Gen.
Meanwhile, his statement about relations with India comes only a few hours after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif proposed a new peace initiative with India on the condition of demilitarisation of the disputed territory of Kashmir.
PM Nawaz outlined a four-point agenda while speaking at the UN General Assembly on Wednesday.
