KOHAT: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif on Tuesday said Pakistan armed forces would fully support every meaningful effort for strengthening the country to ensure a better future for next generations.
“Across the board accountability is necessary for the solidarity, integrity and prosperity of Pakistan,” he said while visiting Signal Regimental Centre in Kohat.
The COAS commended the extra ordinary efforts of ranks of signals corps in providing communication support to Operation Zarb-e-Azb.
He also appreciated the sacrifices rendered both by men in uniform and civilians alike in defeating the terrorists and dislodging them from their bases.
Raheel Sharif said the ongoing war against terrorism and extremism being fought with the backing of entire nation could not bring enduring peace and stability unless the menace of corruption was not uprooted.
Earlier, COAS laid a floral wreath at Yadgar-e-Shuhada and offered Fateha.
At an installation ceremony COAS also pinned the badges of rank on the shoulders of Major General Sohail Ahmed Zaidi, Singnal-in-Chief to formally install him Colonel Commandant of Corps of Signal.
