RAWALPINDI: Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa said on Friday the countries making efforts to isolate Pakistan should realise how the country was valued and honoured by its friends in the international community.
Gen Bajwa was talking to foreign military contingents taking part in the second Pakistan Army Team Spirit (Pats) competitions, being organised near Mangla, according to a statement by the Inter-Services Public Relations.
Terrorism, he said, was adversely affecting the entire world and required a collective response.
Pakistan was a peace-loving country and it had contributed towards peace and stability in the region and beyond, the statement quoted him as saying.
He also highlighted the importance of physical fitness and underlined the need for team work, which would be exhibited during the weeklong PATS events, starting on Saturday (today).
Gen Bajwa visited the National Counter Terrorism Centre, Pabbi, and met members of the participating teams.
