Press Release

Rawalpindi- February 17 2017

COAS made telephone call to US General John Nicholson, Resolute  Support Mission (RSM) Commander in Afghanistan. COAS expressed his concerns over continued acts of terrorism in Pakistan with impunity from Afghanistan. Most of the incidents in Pakistan are claimed by terrorist organisations with leadership hiding in Afghanistan. COAS said that such terrorist activities and inaction against them are testing our current policy of cross border restraint. COAS asked Commander RSM to play his role in disconnecting this planning, direction, coordination and financial support. COAS also informed him about list of terrorists handed over to Afghan authorities for action against them who are hiding inside Afghanistan since long.

US General expressed his condolences on loss of precious lives in recent terrorist incidents and assured him full assistance in response to his concerns. The General also shared his plans to undertake special coordination at appropriate level between RSM, Afghan Security Forces and Pakistan.
