Gilgit [Pakistan], Sept 2 (ANI): Asserting that Pakistan understands conspiracies hatched against it, Army Chief General Raheel Sharif has said that be it Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi or its spy agency RAW, they must know that Islamabad's boundaries were completely safe. Sharif made the remarks while addressing a seminar relating to the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) in Gilgit on Thursday. "We have well understood the conspiracies [being hatched against Pakistan].. We are aware of our enemies, know their tactics and to spoil their designs we would go beyond even the last limit," the Express Tribune quoted General Raheel as saying. He pressed that Pakistan's army was second to none and a battle hardened force. Stating that Operation Zarb-e-Azb was heading in the right direction, he said the evil nexus of corruption and terrorism would be broken at all costs and at every level. The Army Chief reassured that the CPEC will be materialized and Gilgit, which is the gateway to the $46 billion umbrella project, would be developed at par with the neighbouring Chinese cities. He also announced to set up a second Special Security Division, to be called South SSD that will provide security from Rawalpindi to Gwadar. He added that the first North SSD will ensure CPEC security from Khunjrab to Rawalpindi besides assisting the stakeholders. (ANI)
