  2. ISLAMABAD: The Senate's Standing Committee on Defence approved a resolution against the recent statement of Indian army chief on Monday. According to India media outlets, the Indian army chief General Bipin Rawat had said that his forces were ready to call Pakistan's 'nuclear bluff' and cross the border to carry out any operation if asked by the government. The committee, in its resolution, stated that Pakistan will raise the statement of the Indian army chief on every diplomatic platform, and that the Pakistan armed forces are capable of giving a befitting response to India. Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif earlier in his response to the statement said that it amounted to an "invitation for a nuclear encounter." Describing the statement as "very irresponsible", Asif said it wasn't befitting of the office of the Indian army chief. Indian army chief's statement amounts to 'invitation for nuclear encounter', says Asif Foreign minister responds to a recent statement by Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat "If that is what they desire, they are welcome to test our resolve. The general's doubt would swiftly be removed,? the foreign minister said in a tweet. Reacting to the statement, the Foreign Office spokesperson said that Pakistan is "fully capable of defending itself". The Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor also responded to the chief's 'nuclear bluff' assertion saying that such statements were unbecoming from a person of a responsible stature. Speaking to the state television's world service, the Pakistani military spokesman said: "We believe COAS is a very responsible appointment and four-star is a rank with age-long experience and maturity." When asked what if India undertook any misadventure against Pakistan, Ghafoor said: "Well, it's their choice. Should they wish to test our resolve they may try and see it for themselves."
  3. COAS Gen Qamar Bajwa. Photo: File RAWALPINDI: Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa received two phone calls from US Centcom Commander General Joseph Votel and one from a US senator over the week to discuss Pak-US security cooperation following President Donald Trump?s tweet, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Friday. The army chief told the US officials that Pakistan will continue its "sincere counter-terrorism efforts" even without US financial support in accordance with its own national interest and will remain committed to bringing the effort to its logical conclusion along with other stakeholders. Trump, in a New Year tweet, accused Pakistan of lies and deceit. "They give safe havens to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!" he said on January 1. The incident led to heightened tensions between Pakistan and the US. Later, on January 5, the US announced that it is suspending the transfer of military equipment and security-related funds to Pakistan. COAS raises cross-border attacks in meeting with CENTCOM commander CENTCOM Commander General Joseph L Votel met army chief General Qamar Bajwa in Rawalpindi on Thursday According to the ISPR, General Votel apprised the army chief about the US decision regarding the US security assistance and coalition support fund. "The general said that the US values Pakistan?s role towards the war on terror and expected that the ongoing turbulence remains a temporary phase," the ISPR said. He also conveyed to the army chief that the US is not contemplating any unilateral action inside Pakistan but is seeking cooperation to tackle Afghan nationals who, in his view, use Pakistan?s soil against Afghanistan, the ISPR informed. "This view, he felt, was undermining in Washington Pakistan?s contributions in the war against terrorism," the ISPR statement added further. According to the ISPR, the COAS said that the entire Pakistani nation felt betrayed over recent US statements despite decades of cooperation. Accordingly, Pakistan's unanimous national response reflected the same sentiments. Moreover, the army chief was quoted saying that "Pakistan shall continue its sincere counter terrorism efforts even without US financial support in accordance with our national interest and shall remain committed to bringing it to its logical conclusion along with other stakeholders". He added that Pakistan is fully aware of US concerns on activities of Afghan nationals in Pakistan and "we are already undertaking multiple actions through Operation Raddul Fasaad to deny any residual capacity to terrorists of all hue and colour for which return of Afghan Refugees is an essential prerequisite". "Pakistan has suffered hugely due to great power contestation in the region," the army chief reportedly stated. The US officials were also apprised of Pakistan's moves to strengthen border controls unilaterally "but if Afghanistan genuinely feels affected from Pakistan, bilateral border management must be Kabul?s top priority as well". The COAS reiterated that Pakistan will not seek resumption of aid but expects honourable recognition of its contributions, sacrifices and unwavering resolve in the fight against terrorism for peace and stability in the region, according to the ISPR. "Pakistan will keep supporting all initiatives for peace in Afghanistan despite the tendency to scapegoat Pakistan, as peace in Afghanistan is the only way to move towards enduring peace and stability in the region," the army chief was quoted saying by ISPR. General Votel acknowledged the effectiveness of some of the recent actions taken by Pakistan to ensure that Pakistan?s hospitality to Afghan refugees is not misused in any way, the ISPR said, adding that the US general agreed that both countries stand to gain from cooperative engagement.

Earlier this week, the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas had said that Jerusalem was the ?eternal capital of the State of Palestine? in response to US President Donald Trump?s announcement that he was recognising the city as Israel?s capital. In a pre-recorded speech played on Palestine TV, Abbas had rejected Trump?s announcement, which included a decision to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, a move he said was ?tantamount to the United States abdicating its role as a peace mediator.?

Pakistan shares the international outrage and is deeply concerned over the implications of this decision for international peace and security, especially in the Middle East, the statement said and added that Pakistan called upon the UN Security Council to take cognisance of this situation and take steps in accordance with the UN Charter. Pakistan has urged the United States to revisit its decision as soon as possible in order to avoid the potentially grave repercussions in the region and beyond."

"This ends today, with this alliance." The summit is the first meeting of defence ministers and other senior officials from the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition, which officially counts 41 countries and identifies as a "pan-Islamic unified front" against violent extremism. The alliance was announced in 2015 under the auspices of Prince Mohammed, whose rapid ascent since his appointment as heir to the throne in June has shaken the political scene across the region.
