RAWALPINDI  - The Pakistan Ex-Servicemen Society (PESS) on Sunday welcomed the resolve of top military and political leadership to resolve longstanding Siachen military conflict which has inflicted irreversible losses to the two countries.The Prime Ministers of Pakistan and India should immediately hold productive negotiations with a single point agenda of resolving the dispute, it demanded. More soldiers are being killed because of severe weather than clashes in the highest battleground on earth since April 13, 1984, the ex-servicemen said in a meeting with President PESS Lt.Gen.(Retd) Faiz Ali Chishti in chair.Haroon Sikandar Pasha,M. Farooq Mirza, Liaquat Ali Ansari, Sajjad Akhtar Malik, M. Mumtaz, M. Tariq Kamal and a large number of members were also present on the occasion.It is responsibility of the military and political leadership to find a solution which is acceptable to both the countries, they said ,adding, that unilateral withdrawal and official recognition of the current position by Pakistan is out of question. Everyone is becoming aware about the high cost of struggle in the wake of the deadly avalanche that struck the battalion headquarters of the Northern Light Infantry in Gyari sector on April 7th in which 135 soldiers were buried alive in the avalanche, it stated.Resumption of a peace dialogue and subsequent reduced tensions will help Pakistan and India to pull out their troops from the conflict zone which will cut defence expenditures enabling governments to spend more on welfare, it was noted. PESS took strong exception of the statement of Prime Minister in which he dubbed the Chief of Anti-Narcotics Force, Brigadier Fahim Ahmad Khan as a ‘borrowed officer’. It said that Prime Minister should not use derogatory language against a serviceman who is investigating Rs 7 billion drug scam in which PM’s son is involved. PM should abstain from threatening a Constitutionally appointed officer who has been reappointed by the Chief Justice. We would extend all the moral and legal support to Brig. Khan who was trying to discharge his duties honestly, they said.  The meeting welcomed the reaction of President Asif Ali Zardari, PML-N President Nawaz Sharif and COAS Ashfaq Parvez Kayani on the demand of troops withdrawal made by PESS last week.
