Army chief says threats hold on in spite of successes

ISLAMABAD: Despite the successes of Operation Zarb-i-Azb, threats to peace persist, Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif said on Tuesday, calling for the implementation of the National Action Plan (NAP) and wide-ranging legal and governance reforms to sustain the military’s achievements against terrorists.

Speaking at what may well be his last Defence Day ceremony as army chief, Gen Sharif said: “Operation Zarb-i-Azb has attained its military objectives, and today the Pakistan flag flies proudly over all parts of our dear homeland.”

But, at the same time, he admitted that “internal and external threats to peace have not been completely eliminated”.
