RAWALPINDI: Chief of Army Staff (COAS), General Qamar Javed Bajwa has said that route to peaceful solution of Pakistan-India disputes ran through a comprehensive and meaningful dialogue on the basis of sovereign equality, dignity and honour.
He was addressing the passing out parade of 137th PMA Long Course, 8th Mujahid Course and 56th Integrated Course at the Pakistan Military Academy, Kakul on Saturday.
As many as 31 cadets from Fata, 67 cadets from Balochistan and six allied cadets from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia were among the passing out cadets.
General Qamar Javed Bajwa was chief guest on the occasion and reviewed the parade. The coveted Sword of Honour was awarded to Academy Senior under Officer Syed Hasnain Ali.
The President’s Gold Medal went to Battalion Senior under Officer Abdul Wahab Malik, and the Overseas Gold Medal to Academy under Officer Saud from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
General Bajwa reiterated that the nation and its armed forces are united and focused on their primary objective of eradication and elimination of terrorism.
He said Pakistan has eliminated almost all the organised terrorist presence and infrastructure from its soil through the past and ongoing operations.
He maintained that Operation Raddul Fasaad was not only an operation rather it has become a concept, a resolve and a commitment of the nation to eradicate tumult from its soil.
He told the cadets that enemies could not beat Pakistanis fair and square and have thus subjected us to a cruel, evil and protracted hybrid war and they were trying to weaken the nation’s resolve by weakening it from within.
