Pak Army willing to share its experience with world for global peace: COAS
ISLAMABAD: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif said that terrorism is a global phenomenon and terrorists have no country, religion or sect.
He stated this while addressing a ceremony in National Counter Terrorism Training Centre (NCTC), Pabbi. He also witnessed Pak–Sri Lanka–Maldives Trilateral Exercise “Eagle Dash-I”, today.
He said that Pakistan has been victim of terrorism for over a decade and sacrificed a lot but at the end we have turned the tide primarily due to resilience displayed by the whole nation and professionalism of our armed forces.
“We are willing to share our experiences with the world for the benefit of humanity and as an obligation towards international peace,” said the army chief.
Gen Sharif said that Pakistan Army had also taken the initiative of providing counter terrorism training to police personnel and other law enforcement agencies in Pakistan in an effort to enhance their capacity and make them capable of skillfully dealing with this menace in an efficient manner.
Two weeks long exercise was focused on counter terrorism operations and sharing of field combat experience of three Armed forces. Owing to the successes of Operation Zarb-e-Azb, a large number of friendly countries have requested Pakistan Army to organize training for their troops in our state of the art Counter Terrorism Training Centre, said the ISPR statement.
COAS congratulated all participants of exercise for displaying high level of professionalism and combat skills.
