Pakistan Army React on US and Iran conflicts
The ISPR director general rubbished claims that Pakistan’s policy towards Iran had changed.
Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Major General Asif Ghafoor Sunday said Pakistan would play the role of a peacemaker and not take sides in the ongoing conflict between the United States and its neighbor Iran.
“Pakistan has defeated and eliminated terrorism on its territory and would not allow its soil to be used against any other country,” he said talking to private news channels.
The ISPR director general rubbished claims that Pakistan’s policy towards Iran had changed in the wake of resumption of the US military training program for the Pakistan Army as ‘fake news’.
Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor also spoke about the conversation between Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Qamar Javed Bajwa and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. He said the Army Chief told Pompeo that the region was making progress towards peace from a very bad situation and the Baghdad incident would be detrimental to the peace efforts.
“General Bajwa has an important role with regard to regional security and the Afghan peace process, and Pakistan don’t want to see another conflict in this region,” he stated.
