Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa has said Pakistan will always stand by Kashmiris in their struggle for the right of self-determination and recourse to basic human rights.
He expressed these views during a visit to Haji Pir Sector along the Line of Control today.
Army Chief said Kashmiris have a right to live without fear and repression. He said the violence perpetrated by Indian Forces in Occupied Kashmir is state sponsored terrorism by all definitions.
General Qamar Javed Bajwa said this violence riles up our passions as the people of Pakistan cannot remain indifferent to the barbaric treatment meted out to defenceless Kashmiris including women and children.
He said India is venting out its frustration in the form of aggression on people of Occupied Kashmir but our response is purely in military domain in accordance with our values.
Earlier, the Army Chief was given a detailed briefing on the ceasefire violations on LoC. He was also informed about the operational preparedness of the armed forces.
