While showing deep concern over senior USZ officials’ preposterous statements, top brass of Pakistan Army on Sunday slammed allegations of Islamabad’s links with Haqqani Network and resolved to give befitting response to any effort to breach country sovereignty. A special corps commanders meeting chaired by Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani thoroughly reviewed the security situation on Pak-Afghan border and state of preparedness of the force. The meeting also expressed concern over cross-border incursions into Pakistan by Afghan militants. The extraordinary meeting of the corps commanders and principal staff officers came following the sharp USZ allegations that Pakistan Army’s spy agency ISI supported the Haqqani militant group to carryout recent attacks on its embassy and NATO headquarter in Kabul. “The prevailing security situation was discussed”, military officials said without giving details.

If Americans have a death wish, they are most welcome to attack Waziristan”, a panel of expert defence and military analysts told PCF. However, the Americans must not forget that Pakistan is the one who broke Soviet Union and we would like to repeat history if America behaves like Soviet Union”, they added in a unanimous e-mail message. Some military sources said that meeting rejected all the allegations and expressed its concern over the negative statements emanating from the USZ. The meeting reiterated that Pakistan Armed Forces were committed to achieving enduring peace in the region and expressed total resolve to give befitting response in case there was any effort to violate national sovereignty. Meanwhile, Commander of the USZ Central Command General James Mattis also called on General Kayani and exchanged views on strengthening military to military relations. In another development, Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee General Khalid Shamim Wynne while expressing concern over USZ allegations emphasised that peace in the region would only be possible through mutual trust and cooperation.

He conveyed his reaction to General James Mattis who called on him Sunday. “Both leaders discussed various matters of mutual interests and emerging geo-strategic situation in the region”, a military statement said. “General Wynne expressed his concern about the negative statements emanating from the USZ“, it said, adding, “He stressed upon addressing the irritants in the relationship which are a result of an extremely complex situation.” “Pakistan Armed Forces are committed to achieving enduring peace in the region which will only be possible through mutual trust and cooperation”, the statement said. The meeting strongly criticised top USZ military officer Admiral Mike Mullen’s statement that Pakistan was exporting terror to neighbouring Afghanistan.

The USZ embassy in a statement said Mattis visited Islamabad to meet with Army Chief General Ashfaq Kayani and General Shamim Wynne. “The generals had candid discussions over the current challenges in the USZ-Pakistan relationship”, the statement said. It said that General Mattis also emphasised the vital role the Pakistan military played in international security efforts to protect the Pakistani and Afghan people and the need for persistent engagement among the militaries of the USZ, Pakistan and other states in the region.
