General John W. Nicholson, Commander Resolute Support Mission (RSM) and US Forces in Afghanistan called on Chief of Army Staff (COAS), General Qamar Javed Bajwa at GHQ today.

The two discussed regional security situation and border management issues.

He said that despite provocations, Pakistan will continue to act positively as we consider defeat of terrorism as a National interest.

Gen Nicholson reiterated his appreciation of the professionalism of Pakistan Army and his admiration for resilience of people of Pakistan. Both agreed on need for continuous engagement and coordination for peace and stability in the region.

US Ambassador H.E Mr David Hale was also present during the meeting.
