KARACHI: The Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC) General Zubair Mehmood Hayat on Saturday said Indian intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) is operating from Afghanistan to target the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.
Addressing the passing out ceremony for Midshipmen Commissioning and Short Service Commission (SSC) at the Pakistan Naval Academy in Karachi, the CJCSC said, “We are aware of the enemies’ designs to hamper CPEC.”
He emphasised that the Armed Forces of Pakistan will defeat all plans of enemies.
“We are taking synergetic efforts to deal with challenges,” he said. “Attempts to coerce Pakistan have failed in the past.”
The CJCSC – at the ceremony attended by 100 officers including 28 cadets from Bahrain, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia — said the armed forces want to cleanse Pakistan of terrorism.
General Hayat reiterated that Pakistan seeks harmonious co-existence with its neighbours, and stated that peace in Afghanistan is fundamental to peace in Pakistan.
