PESHAWAR: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa Wednesday said the dividends of peace are linked to mainstreaming of Fata in line with popular public sentiments.
The Army Chief said this while chairing the 210th Corps Commanders’ Conference at the General Headquarters which reviewed evolving geo-strategic environment and security situation of the country, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.
The Corps Commanders discussed progress of ongoing Operation Raddul Fasaad and Khushal Balochistan programme. The forum acknowledged contributions and sacrifices of all national stakeholders especially the resilient Pakistanis in rejecting terrorism and bringing about security and stability in the country.
The military commanders discussed lines of stability operations to carry forward the gains of successful kinetic operations.
“The COAS directed that the stability and development prong efforts must trickle down dividends of peace to the public, while control of cleared areas is being handed over to civil administration through their enhanced capacity,” the statement said.
“Key step for its realisation remains linked to mainstreaming of Fata in line with popular public sentiments,” it added.
The forum concluded to continue efforts in support of state institutions which are taking Pakistan on a positive trajectory of peace, stability and prosperity.
