ROME (Web Desk) – Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif on Wednesday said Pakistan will bring its war on terror to its logical end, purging the whole region of terrorism.

The Army Chief who is on an official visit to Italy, said during a speech in Centre of International Studies, Rome, that Pakistan had launched Operation Zarb-e-Azb to eliminate terrorism which was a global threat, Geo News reported.

“For the world, terrorism is a conflict, for Pakistan it’s a war of survival,” said the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Asim Bajwa quoting the army chief as saying.

He said terrorists would not be allowed to reorganise, adding that the operation will ensure establishment of peace in Pakistan and the whole world. “Terrorism has attacked our common roots, global threat needs global response. Only together can we win this war,” said the COAS.

He added that Pakistan and Afghanistan were placed inseparably and shared their destiny and that peace in one country is not possible without peace in the other.
