COAS at the National Workshop Balochistan

On November 17, 2020 Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited Quetta. There he interacted with participants of National Workshop Balochistan. This workshop is aimed at enhancing the understanding of participants about critical national security issues, timely decision-making process, national security management system and elements of national power. Speaking on the occasion, COAS said: “Progress and stability in Balochistan is critical to the prosperity of Pakistan. All stakeholders including the Army have synergized their efforts for socio-economic uplift of the people of Balochistan”. Dilating upon security situation, COAS highlighted that measures like fencing of Pak-Afghan and Pak-Iran borders, effective articulation of security apparatus deployed across the province, and Quetta Safe City Project etc., will have positive impact on the overall security paradigm of Balochistan.

COAS emphasized, “Nefarious efforts of hostile elements to foment terrorism and create chaos in the largest province of Pakistan won’t be allowed to succeed. Pakistan’s peace and prosperity is linked with commitment to democracy and its values.”

Later, the COAS visited School of Infantry and Tactics (SI&T) where he was briefed about new training modules and online examination systems enacted for the young leadership. The brief also covered various innovative systems/techniques being incorporated in the training regime.
While interacting with faculty and students of SI&T, COAS urged them to stay abreast of developments in modern warfare. He also appreciated the hardwork and dedication of faculty and staff of SI&T in grooming the young officers and soldiers for taking on the future challenges befittingly.
