KAKUL: Afghan Army Chief Sher Mohammad Karimi emphasised that Pakistan and Afghanistan must cooperate closely in order to rid the region of the menace of terrorism, said a report published on Radio Pakistan.He was addressing the 132nd passing out parade of Pakistan Military Academy.

General Karimi further said that the region has suffered four decades of war. However, the objective of peace is still achievable. He added that greatest threat for the region is from terrorists and militants who have no religious or moral values and know no boundaries.

He also said that Pakistan and Afghanistan's common enemies are terrorists and both countries must ensure support from the people in order to win the war against these non-state actors.

While talking about the ongoing strategic dialogue between Pakistan and Afghanistan, the army chief expressed optimism and said that it will help achieve peace and stability in the region.

He also lauded the Pakistan Army by mentioning that it is ranked amongst the best armies, adding that he feels proud to attend the passing-out ceremony of Pakistan Army cadets. The army chief also handed out trophies and swords of honour to the outstanding cadets.

Gen Karimi had the distinction of being the first foreign dignitary to be the chief guest at the ceremony, which marks the commissioning of officers on completion of their two-year-long training course at the country’s premier military academy.

The Afghan army chief’s participation as chief guest at the passing out parade of the 132 PMA Long Course signifies a transformation in bilateral relations over the past few months, particularly defence cooperation which once suffered from mutual mistrust.
