  • Pakistan's army chief joins conference in Afghan capital

In a statement the military's media wing said the army chief will participate in the Chief of Defense Conference. "Regions develop as a whole, not individual countries", Gen Qamar said in what appears to be a statement linked to the U.S. new strategy that sought greater role for India in the region.

Addressing the conference, General Bajwa said that Pakistan has eradicated all terrorist sanctuaries from its soil.

Gen Bajwa said they are targeting these terror elements by ongoing Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad, adding that Pakistani territory is not allowed to be used against any other country and "Pakistan expects the same reciprocity".

Chiefs of Defence Conference on peace and stability in Afghanistan will begin in Kabul on Tuesday (today). The conference was attended by US CENTCOM Commander General Joseph Votel, US commander in Afghanistan General John Nicholson and army chiefs of Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.

He said that collaborative approach and persistence was the answer to all challenges, for which Pakistan was ready to play its part.

Tuesday's meeting came amid escalating terrorist attacks in Afghanistan, some claimed by loyalists of Islamic State.

"I believe that at last Pakistan will bow to worldwide pressure and will join the fight against terrorism", Waziri said.

In his address, Gen Qamar reiterated that the path to regional peace and stability passes through Afghanistan.

Last August, Trump announced a new strategy for Afghanistan that included increasing troops to up to 14,000 soldiers and a tough stance towards Pakistan, a country that Washington accuses of sheltering Taliban rebels.

It is not clear if Pakistan's army chief will meet with Afghan authorities separately or not.

Some reports earlier said North Atlantic Treaty Organisation commanderGen.
