General Raheel made the remarks during an address at a seminar in Gilgit-Baltistan, which has been illegally occupied by Pakistan, to highlight the progress of the $ 46 billion China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project.
Gen Raheel said Pakistan was aware of the “nefarious designs” of the enemies and will take every step to ensure security.
Making a special mention of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and India’s intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), Gen Raheel assured the nation that the country’s frontiers are totally secure, Dawn News reported.
However, no statement was issued by army in this regard.
General Raheel said that CPEC would be completed and it will greatly benefit the people of Gilgit-Baltistan.
“I am confident that Gilgit-Baltistan will also develop like the Chinese area across the border,” he said.
Gen Raheel said the army will provide foolproof security to CPEC which was a project of national importance.
Asserting that Pakistan was determined to eliminate militancy, General Raheel said, “We don’t care what the world says, but we are fighting for our survival and the way the army has worked for eradication of terrorism, no other army can do that.”
