Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Monday said that hostile agencies which are trying to destabilise Pakistan from overseas and elements which are criticising the army would be in the grip of law soon, said a statement released by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Geo News reported.

The army chief made the remarks while visiting the grave of Lieutenant Arsalan Alam, who was martyred while manning a border post in Rajgal valley.

"They [hostile agencies] fear the army being a hurdle to achieving their nefarious designs", Gen Bajwa said during his visit to the family of Lt Arsalan Alam, the 22-year-old martyr.

On the contrary, some people and hostile agencies from overseas were badmouthing Pakistan and its army and talking about dismembering the country.

He stressed that only the state has the authority to use power and every enemy of Pakistan is the enemy of armed forces, promising that they will not back away for the supremacy of law and peace. "We salute the martyrs [who have laid their lives for Pakistan]".

He said the Army will continue to work for defeating militants.

According to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the army chief said that the army had taken a solemn oath to defend the nation at whatever cost and sacrifices, and will continue to do so.

"Let me make it clear that no power can harm us as long as we have such valiant sons of the soil and their courageous parents in Pakistan", he added.

The army recently concluded Operation Khyber IV in the Rajgal valley and declared that the area was cleared off terrorists.

Pakistan is a resilient nation, a tweet by the DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor said.

This terminology was traditionally used for India but now Afghanistan's intelligence agencies are also branded as hostile.
