RAWALPINDI: Referring to the recent statements of the Indian military leadership, particularly the Indian army chief, accusing Pakistan Army and ISI of supporting terrorism, Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani on Friday termed them as unfortunate, unfounded and provocative.

While talking to a group of officers at the General Headquarters, the COAS said that Pakistan was also concerned about the continued violations of ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC). The ceasefire was proposed by Pakistan and agreed to by the two countries in 2003, an ISPR press release quoted the COAS as saying. He added that rather than hurling such baseless accusations, India would be well advised to respond positively to Pakistan's suggestion for holding joint or impartial investigation into the LoC incidents, preferably by the United Nations.

Pakistan Army, he said, was exercising restraint, but it should in no way be used as a pretext for levelling such baseless allegations that vitiate prospects of regional peace. Kayani said Pakistan Army is fully supportive of the peace process initiated by the government.

The chief of army staff on Friday visited desert formations engaged in field training as part of the army field exercise. He witnessed formations undertaking manoeuvres involving corps and division size defensive and offensive operations during day and night and expressed satisfaction over their battle readiness, said a press release issued by ISPR Multan on Friday. The COAS found both officers and jawans in very high morale and advised them to maintain their combat efficiency.

The army field exercise, which has continued since September 2013, marks the culmination of the Azm-e-Nau series of war games and was aimed at practising the concepts and doctrines evolved over last three to four years. Earlier, Multan Corps Commander Lt Gen Abid Pervaiz welcomed the chief of army staff upon his arrival at the exercise area. He briefed the COAS during the military exercise involving corps, division war strategies and different stages of attack operations.
