Qatar lauds professionalism of Pakistan’s armed forces

Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa has said Pakistan values its brotherly relations with Qatar and Pakistan Army also looks forward for enhanced defence and security cooperation with Qatari Armed Forces.

He was talking to Commander Qatar Air Force Major General Jassim Mohamed Ahmed Al-Mannai, who called on him in Rawalpindi on Wednesday.

The visiting dignitary acknowledged the professionalism of the Pakistan Armed Forces and vowed to enhance cooperation in various fields.

During the meeting, matters of mutual & professional interests and regional security situation were discussed.

Earlier, Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa said that nothing can compensate for martyrdom of the armed forces personnel.

Gen Bajwa said this while addressing the GHQ Investiture ceremony, held at the General Headquarters in Rawalpindi recently.

He said that neither any nation could pay for the sacrifices of Shuhada nor any money could be compensation for their sacrifices, adding that no privilege or assistance could be an alternative to the sacrifices of Shuhada. He conferred military awards on army personnel over their acts of gallantry during operations and meritorious services, rendered for the nation.

The army chief said Pakistan achieved successes against the menace of terrorism because of the sacrifices of Shuhada, Ghazis and their families. He said that the world community acknowledges that Pakistan Army was the only army which rooted out terrorism and also wonders if that success was possible.

“I used to tell the world that we achieved such a big success against terrorism which no other county can do because we have mothers and fathers, children and women who are always ready to sacrifice their sons, fathers and husbands for their motherland,” he said, adding that he was confident that no power of the world could harm Pakistan till such mothers, fathers, wives and children are here.

The COAS said that it was due to the sacrifices of officers, JCOs and soldiers that we sleep in peace in our homes. “I assure families of Shuhada that we will not disappoint you,” General Bajwa said.

A large number of senior army officers and families of the awardees attended the ceremony. Moving scenes were witnessed at the GHQ auditorium, as the families remembered their loved-ones who sacrificed their lives for the motherland.
