He was addressing the passing out parade at Pakistan Air Force Academy Risalpur today.
Pakistan’s desire for peace must not be construed as a sign of weakness, said Admiral Zakaullah.
The naval chief said any attempt to browbeat Pakistan would neither succeed nor serve the purpose of peace and prosperity in the region.
Admiral Zakaullah said in the current security scenario certain extremist elements abetted externally are out to disrupt our peace and harmony. He said our defence forces supported by the nation are fighting the menace bravely and effectively.
He said Pakistan Air Force has extended all out support to Pakistan Army in combating anti-state elements in operation Zarb-e-Azb.
PAF jets also performed a fly-past during the ceremony.
