Pakistan’s army chief General Raheel Sharif on Thursday said his country understood the clever maneuvers of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and its intelligence agency RAW. Speaking at a seminar related to the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) in Gilgit, Sharif reportedly said, “In order to protect the country, we would go beyond the the last limit.” Assuring his own countrymen, Sharif said Pakistan’s boundaries were completely safe.
According to Dawn News, Sharif said, “Be it Prime Minister Modi or RAW or anyone else, we are well aware of the tactics used by our enemies.” He claimed to understand the “conspiracies” being hatched against Pakistan. Addressing the crowd at Gilgit, Sharif assured that the exil nexus of corruption and terrorism would be broken at any cost. He also said the country would ensure “foolproof security of CPEC.”
Asserting that Pakistan doesn’t care what the world says because they are fighting for their survival, Sharif said, “The way the army has worked for eradication of terrorism, no other army can do that.” The Pakistan Army chief said that the Operation Zarb-e-Azb, which was launched in June 2015 against terrorist elements, was heading in the right direction.
The country has been rocked by two terrorist incidents on Friday – one an attack on a Christian colony and the other a blast outside a district court in Mardan city in Khyber-Pakhtunkwa province. A dozen people were killed and 52 others were reported to be injured in the latter attack.
