Army chief heads to Kabul today


ISLAMABAD: In an attempt to bridge the growing trust deficit between the two neighbouring countries, Chief of the Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa will visit Afghanistan on Sunday (today) to hold discussions with Afghan authorities.

Sources told Dawn that the army chief would meet President Ashraf Ghani and discuss matters pertaining to the fight against the common enemy — militancy and terrorism.

Besides discussing ways and means to bolster border security measures — a long-standing demand from the Pakistani side — Gen Bajwa is also likely to renew Islamabad’s offer to impart training to Afghan troops and police personnel in Pakistan.

The army chief is likely to emphasise the need to use dialogue to removing all bilateral differences.


  1. Oh Heavens. I don’t know what to do as I have loads of work to do next week summer. Plus the university exams are approaching, it will be a stretch. I am already being anxious maybe I should read more to calm down a little bit. Hopefully it will all go well. Wish me luck.

  2. Hey all! Recently I have been struggling with a lot of challenges. Friends and doctors keep telling me I should consider taking pills, so I may as well read more and see how it goes. Problem is, I haven’t taken it for a while, and don’t wanna get back to it, we’ll see how it goes.
