Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor has said that peace in Kabul would translate into peace in Pakistan, adding that instability in Afghanistan is not in our interest.

In an interview with a private news channel, DG ISPR thanked the people of Pakistan and the political leadership for their support in making headway in the nationwide anti-terror military action Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad, terming it an “intelligence-based campaign”.

He said the political and military leadership has joined hands to make such operations successful.

“35,000 units of illegal weapons were recovered during Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad,” he said, adding that 75,000 covert operations were carried out during the past two years.

Maj Gen Ghafoor said, “The new war is about progress. If anyone wants to wage a war now, it has to be for education, health and employment … we are taking steps for the rehabilitation of tribal areas.”

Answering a question about India’s surgical strikes, the military spokesman said when India’s drones were not able to cross into Pakistan, how Indian army could conduct surgical strikes.
