Regional actors, hostile agencies fully involved to use terror as policy tool against Pakistan: COAS
Says Pakistan ready to help Afghanistan to eliminate terrorist safe havens in their border areas.
Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa says cowardly incidents of terrorism cannot lower national resolve to eliminate militancy from its roots in the country.
Chairing a security meeting in Lahore on Tuesday, he said we are making gains in breaking connectivity between terror masterminds, their facilitators and executors.
The Army Chief said the Army fully supports and stands with police and other law enforcement agencies towards performance of their role as first responders.
He said regional actors and hostile intelligence agencies are fully involved to use terror as policy tool.
He said concurrent blasts at Kabul and Lahore are testimony of our stance that both Pakistan and Afghanistan are victims of terrorism and will continue to suffer if these actors are able to use Afghan territory with impunity.
He reiterated that Pakistan is ready to help Afghanistan to eliminate terrorist safe havens in their border areas as we have done on our side.
Later, the Army Chief visited injured of the blast at General Hospital, Lahore.
