Sub-continent conflict will be uncontrollable: Kiyani
Rawalpindi, Jan 2: The Chief of Army Staff (COAS), General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani has said that peace and stability in South Asia is the logical and fundamental principle underlining the security paradigm of Pakistan.
Addressing senior officers at General Headquarters, the COAS said that proponents of conventional application of military forces, in a ‘nuclear overhang’ are chartering an adventurous and dangerous path; the consequences of which could be both unintended and uncontrollable.
General Kayani said that Pakistan Army is fully alert and alive to the full spectrum of threat, which continues to exist in conventional and unconventional domains.
Pakistan is not oblivious to the unprecedented acquisition of sophisticated military hardware, synergised with an offensive military doctrine.
However, as a responsible nuclear capable state, Pakistan Army will contribute to strategic stability and strategic restraint as per the stated policy of Government of Pakistan.
But at the same time Pakistan will continue to maintain the necessary wherewithal to deter and, if required, defeat any aggressive design, in any form or shape.
The COAS reaffirmed that Pakistan Army stands committed and prepared to respond to any existing, potential or emerging threat.
