Pakistan expects zonal countries to play equally positive part, COAS tells Alice Wells
Islamabad (Web Desk): The Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Monday reiterated Pakistan’s commitment for peace and stability in the region particularly in Afghanistan through a national approach.
In a statement issued in Rawalpindi, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said that regional security environment and matters of mutual interest were discussed during the meeting.
“Pakistan also expects other players in the region to play an equally positive part”, the army chief stated.
Ambassador Wells assured that the US is committed to lasting peace and supports all efforts towards that end.
Both agreed that bilateral convergences should be leveraged to gain positive momentum rather than remaining hostage to perceptions, ISPR added regarding the meeting.
Earlier on March 1, in an interview with an American broadcast organisation, Wells had said that the US wanted to become a partner of Pakistan against terrorist organisations.
