Army chief witnesses Pak-China drill at counter-terror training centre

ISLAMABAD: Chief of the Army Staff Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa visited the National Counter Terrorism Training Centre (NCTC) at Pabbi and spent the day witnessing concluding sessions of high-profile training events.

He saw the final day of the two-month-long Pakistan-China exercise Warrior-4, which focused on high-impact counter-terrorism operations, both in rural and urban areas, using heli-borne and special forces of both countries, said an ISPR press release.

Speaking to officers and troops, the COAS noted that sharing of best experiences through a series of exercises had improved counter-terror combat skills of both Chinese and Pakistan troops.

He emphasised that such exercises had integrated the two armies and “would help us eliminate terrorism from the region”.

“Our newly-built NCTC has been recognised as a world class facility and it is attracting other armies of the world for training with our army.”

Gen Bajwa appreciated the interest of friendly countries in training with Pakistan Army, and said, “We will continue to offer our training services for defeating the menace of terrorism and bringing peace”.

The army chief also commended the staff of the training centre for having trained Rangers, police, ASF and other personnel for fighting terrorists.

Later, the Chinese Military Commander praised the Pakistan Army for its highest standard of training and skills and said it was an asset that China would continue to benefit from.
