United Kingdom army chief on Pak visit

13 Octobre 2017

Chief of General Staff UK Army General Sir Nicholas Patrick Carter called on Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa in Rawalpindi on Friday reported by Radio Pakistan. Speaking at the seminar, Bajwa said, "Our external front which continues to remain in a flux".

The Army chief said Pakistan needed a comprehensive effort to pursue the National Action Plan and remove vulnerabilities well before they turn into threats. "We have also expressed and demonstrated our genuine desire to have normal and and peaceful relations with India, however, it takes two to tango", Bajwa said. On October 2, a boy and a teenage girl were killed after the Pakistani troops started firing near Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district.

On September 21, after a two-day lull in cross-border firing and shelling, Pakistani troops targeted Indian border outposts and villages along the worldwide border in Jammu and Samba districts, injuring three civilians.

Stating that India is lacking in efforts to normalise situations with Pakistan, Bajwa claimed, "On our part, we are making a deliberate and concerted effort to pacify the western border through a multitude of diplomatic, military and economic initiative, not to mention the phenomenal boost to human security that we have provided in FATA and surrounding areas". Hinting that India is not responding to its peace pleas, Bajwa said that "it takes two to tango".

Bajwa also expressed concern over the countrys "sky high" debts, saying the abysmally low tax to GDP ratio must change if the country has to "break the begging bowl". "Infrastructure and energy have improved considerably but the current account balance is not in our favour", he said.

According to figures released by the finance ministry, Pakistans foreign debt and liabilities are around United States dollars 58 billion.
