Addressing a passing-out parade held at Pakistan Military Academy in Kakul, General Sharif lauded the efforts of newly trained military personnel and touched upon key issues facing the country presently.

The chief, in his address, said the people of Kashmir should decide their fate as the quest for peace is the nation’s greatest strength.

“Lasting peace in the region will only come about with a fair and just resolution of Kashmir issue in accordance with the will of Kashmiri people, as enshrined in the UN resolution,” said General Sharif.

General Sharif also said the armed forces were fully capable of responding to any external threat.

“Let there be no doubt that any aggression against our beloved country will get a befitting response; no sacrifice will be too great in this sacred cause,” Sharif emphasised.

Speaking on the war against terrorism, General Sharif stated that Operation Zarb e Azb was not merely an operation but a concept and a resolve and a commitment of the nation.

“The commitment is to cleanse Pakistan of the scourge of terrorism once and for all,” said General Sharif.

The army chief said that the displaced people of FATA would return home sooner than expected as all intelligence agencies, law enforcement agencies and military operations were playing a commendable role in the operation.

Concluding his address, General Sharif entrusted the newly trained cadets with the responsibility of leading the country with dignity and honour.
