COAS praises vast resources, energetic youth of Pakistan
Says country knows how to defend its hard-earned freedom.
KAKUL: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Gen Asim Munir on Monday praised the vast resources of the country and the enthusiasm of its youth.
He said the spirit behind the creation of Pakistan was rooted in the ideology of the two nation theory and the country knew how to defend its hard-earned freedom.
In his address at the Azadi Parade marking the country’s 76th independence anniversary, the army chief said the nation had “maintained this tradition of celebrating freedom, equality and quest for happiness, which we must continue to cherish”.
The gathering was held at the Pakistan Military Academy in Kakul late on Sunday.
Gen Munir praised the country’s vast resources and the enthusiasm of its youth, urging them to remain steadfast in faith, unity and discipline.
Acknowledging the myriad of challenges faced by the nation, from geopolitical wrangling to internal threats, the COAS struck a defiant tone.
“Let me caution them all, in the words of our great Quaid, ‘There is no power on earth which can undo Pakistan’,” he said, asserting that the army stood ready to defend Pakistan’s sovereignty at all costs.
Gen Munir also took the occasion to express solidarity with the people of held Kashmir, condemning the international community’s lack of action against Indian actions in the region.
