Pakistan’s Army chief asks India to adopt ‘dialogue for peace’ instead of ‘provocative statements, ceasefire violations’
Srinagar: Pakistan army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa has asked India to adopt the course of dialogue for peace and progress in the region instead of ‘resorting to provocative statements and ceasefire violations.’
Quoting the army’s media wing, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Dawn News reported that Gen Bajwa made these remarks during a visit to the restive Line of Control (LoC) in Pakistan administered Kashmir on Wednesday.
Gen Bajwa, according to the report, pointed out that lately there had been a surge in ceasefire violations by India and rhetoric of provocative statements by its military leadership.
“We are a professional and combat hardened army ready to defend our motherland … It would be better if they [India] realise this and place their stock in peace and progress through dialogue,” Gen Bajwa said.
