Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa Wednesday visited National Defence University (NDU), Islamabad.

The COAS while addressing the participants of the National Security and War Course (NSWC– 21) dilated upon the evolving strategic and regional environment. He said that Pakistan stood for peace within and all around, as it looked forward acting as a bridge between regions. Expounding on Pakistan’s support to Afghan Peace Process, the COAS said that spoilers of peace in Afghanistan were posing risk to regional stability. Expressing resolute support to the people of IIOJ&K, the COAS stressed a peaceful and durable solution to the Kashmir issue in line with relevant UN resolutions and aspirations of the Kashmiri people.

Sharing his vision of the Pakistan Army, the COAS underscored the need for continuous evaluation of existing doctrine and corresponding strategy to effectively deal with the evolving threats in various domains. He termed professionalism, competence and devotion to duty as hallmarks of the Pakistan Army and emphasised realistic and futuristic training for maintaining perpetual operational readiness. Force modernization and induction of advanced technologies are imperative for maintaining a qualitative edge over the adversary, the COAS remarked. A well-equipped, well-trained and motivated Army having unwavering support of its people can surmount any challenge, he said and added the forces that wish to undermine the unbreakable bond between the armed forces and the nation were bound to fail.  

Congratulating the participants on the successful completion of their course, Bajwa advised them to stay focused on attaining professional excellence while remaining abreast with revolutionary advancements in warfare that were redefining national security.   

Earlier on arrival, COAS was received by Lieutenant General Muhammad Saeed, President NDU.
