Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor on Friday during an interview with Voice of America (VOA) said that suspension of US aid will impact security cooperation between Pakistan and United States.
“Suspension of US assistance will impact bilateral security cooperation and regional peace efforts,” he said. “But it will not deter our resolve to fight terrorism.”
“Pakistan never fought for money, but for peace. We have paid a heavy price both in blood and treasure.” DG ISPR said
“The Pakistan Army has indiscriminately targeted terrorists including Haqqanis.”
“There are no organised terrorist sanctuaries inside Pakistan,” he maintained.
The DG ISPR further said that casting doubts on Pakistan’s would not be good for common objectives of Washington and Islamabad.
“Casting doubt on our will is not good to our common objective of moving towards enduring peace and stability.”
He further vowed that “Pakistan shall continue its sincere efforts in best interest of Pakistan and peace.”
