.. news says Russian invasion of Ukraine must be stopped immediately: COAS Bajwa says
WHY IS ARMY CHIEF IS GIVING THAT STATMENT?? such words should come out of Prime Minister or President of the country... the news says
Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Gen Qamar Bajwa on Saturday said that Russia's invasion of Ukraine must be "stopped immediately", terming it a great tragedy.
Speaking at the Islamabad Security Dialogue, Gen Bajwa expressed Pakistan's serious concern over the conflict, adding that "despite legitimate security concerns of Russia, its aggression against a smaller country cannot be condoned."
"Pakistan has consistently called for an immediate ceasefire and cessation of hostilities. We support immediate dialogue between all sides to find a lasting solution to the conflict," he added.
He said the Russian invasion of Ukraine was very unfortunate as thousands of people had been killed, millions made refugees and "half of Ukraine destroyed".
The army chief said the conflict gave hope to smaller countries that they could still defend their territory with smaller but agile forces against aggression by a bigger country by carrying out selective modernatisation of equipment.
He noted that Pakistan had enjoyed excellent defence and economic relationships with Ukraine since its independence but relations with Russia were "cold" for a long time because of numerous reasons. However, some positive developments in this regard had taken place recently, he added.
Pakistan had sent humanitarian assistance to Ukraine via Pakistan Air Force (PAF) planes and would continue to do, he said. He cautioned that the continuation or expansion of the conflict would not serve the interests of any side, least of all the developing countries which would continue to face socio-economic costs of the conflict, which he said could "easily get out of hand".
Gen Bajwa pointed out that there were two camps internationally — those who advocated contestation and those who advocated cooperation — and the future vision of security would be decided based on which camp prevailed.
"I believe the world today is built by those who believe in cooperation, respect and equality, instead of division, war-mongering and dominance."
well then CHIEF OF ARMY STAFF should resign the post JOIN THE COUNTRY POLITICS .. WIN THE ELECTIONS TO BECOME PM and then say such words..
and out PHONEY PHOREN MINSTER LEFT THE COUNTRY at the every crucial times of Imran Govt and he says '
Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi also spoke at the event and said Pakistan was ready to consider "east-west" connectivity to help address challenges of poverty and underdevelopment in South Asia.
He said a "willing partner" was needed for that endeavour. "Unfortunately, we face a toxic mix in India. An extremist ideological regime that thrives on anti-Muslim hate and hostility for Pakistan," Qureshi added.
FM Qureshi said the missile incident reflected India's disregard for aviation safety and regional peace and stability.
"This incident is consistent with India's irresponsible conduct. It must be addressed by the international community including the UN Security Council.
"Pakistan continues to act with maximum restraint and responsibility despite [Indian] provocations," the foreign minister said.
