Rawalpindi [Pakistan], Feb 18 (ANI): Pakistan's Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa has expressed his concerns over continued acts of terrorism in Pakistan with impunity from Afghanistan. General Bajwa, in a telephone call to U.S. General John Nicholson, Resolute Support Mission (RSM) Commander in Afghanistan, said that most of the incidents in Pakistan are claimed by terrorist organisations with leadership hiding in Afghanistan. He said that such terrorist activities and inaction against them are testing their current policy of cross border restraint. The Army Chief urged General Nicholson to play his role in disconnecting this planning, direction, coordination and financial support. General Bajwa also informed him about list of terrorists handed over to Afghan authorities for action against them who are hiding inside Afghanistan since long. General Nicholson expressed his condolences on loss of precious lives in recent terrorist incidents and assured him full assistance in response to his concerns, Inter-Services Public Relations said in a statement. The U.S. General also shared his plans to undertake special coordination at appropriate level between RSM, Afghan Security Forces and Pakistan. (ANI)
