Ready to go to any extent for Kashmiris: Pak Army Chief

Islamabad, Aug 6 (IANS) In his first reaction to the revoking of Article 370, Pakistan Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Tuesday said the Pakistan Army will go to any extent to fulfil its obligations towards the people of Kashmir.

“The military leadership fully supports the Pakistan government’s rejections of Indian actions regarding Kashmir and is prepared and shall go to any extent to fulfil obligations to the Kashmiri people,” said Bajwa after a meeting of the Corps Commanders Conference in General Headquarters (GHQ) Rawalpindi.

The meeting was held to review the country’s security situation in view of India’s withdrawing Jammu and Kashmir’s special status and organising the state.

A statement by Pakistan Army’s Director General Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said, “Pakistan never recognised the sham Indian efforts to legalise its occupation of Jammu & Kashmir through article 370 or 35-A decades ago; efforts which have now been revoked by India itself.”

Pakistan had strongly condemned the move and vowed to “exercise all possible options to counter the illegal steps” taken by India.

The Indian Forces are closely monitoring the activities of the Pakistan Army on the border, said sources. New Delhi is also prepared for any contingency, said an official.
