RAWALPINDI: Chief of the Army Staff General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani said militancy could only be eliminated by greater intelligence sharing between Pakistani and Nato forces about the movements of Taliban militants.
General Kayani made these remarks while talking to a four-member US congressional delegation led by Senator John McCain who called on him at GHQ in Rawalpindi today.
Overall security situation in the region was also discussed.
General Kayani said Pakistan has legitimate interests in promoting peace and stability in Afghanistan and urged that US must remain sensitive to Pakistan’s core national interests and concerns.
He said that US actions should remain on the Afghan side of the border and only Pakistani forces should have the right to carry out attacks against militants in Pakistan.
