‘We’ve done our job, you do yours now’
Lahore – Pakistan Army reiterated on Friday that the country has dismantled terror networks on its soil, stressing that Islamabad needed nothing from Washington except confidence and trust.
Army spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor said Pakistan had cooperated a lot with the US and “we want to continue the same diplomacy and cooperation in future too”.
Talking to a private news channel, he said Pakistan had achieved many successes at home front and also contributed a lot to war against terror in the region through extending cooperation to the US in the Afghan war.
The US could not have achieved the success in war against terrorism and al-Qaeda without the cooperation of Pakistani forces, said the director general of Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR).
Pakistan had dismantled the terrorist networks from the motherland and now it was the responsibility of the allied and Afghan forces to eliminate the TTP and other militant organisations from Afghanistan he said.
Gen Asif Ghafoor suggested that Afghanistan should share intelligence with Pakistan and “we are ready to cooperate and coordinate” with the neighbour to eradicate terrorism. He made it clear that Pakistan will not allow any country to fight Afghan war from its soil.
The ISPR DG said the US cooperates with many countries in the field of defence including Pakistan.
To a question he said Pakistan’s nuclear assets were safe.
To another query he said that India had done massive violations along the Line of Control and Working Boundary during 2017.
India was targeting innocent people along the border, while Pakistan only targets the Indian check posts in retaliation, he added.
The Kashmiris freedom struggle and movement in Occupied Jammu and Kashmir had been strengthened, instead of being suppressed as a result of the Indian oppression, he said.
