Srinagar: “Pakistan is fully aware of the threats emanating from hostile intelligence agencies, especially Indian intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), against the country and the multi-billion dollar China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).”
This was stated by Pak Army official CJCSC Gen Zubair Mahmood Hayat at a function in Karachi, DawnNews reported.
The Chairman Joint Chiefs of the Staff Committee, Pakistan Gen Zubair Mahmood Hayat, alleged these foreign intelligence agencies are operating from Afghanistan and other locations to foment unrest in Pakistan, especially in Balochistan.
“Their designs [and] oblique actions to sabotage CPEC are also well known,” he said.
Gen Hayat said Pakistan is confronting adversaries who are involved in an “indirect sub-conventional warfare against us”.
Pointing to the existential conventional threat emanating from India, Gen Hayat said asymmetry has reached a critical threshold in the east.
In order to counter such threats, the country’s armed forces are committed to undertaking “synergetic national efforts”, he said.
“Make no mistake, we will beat back the enemy’s design.”
Gen Hayat said Pakistan’s security forces along with law-enforcement agencies are playing a crucial role in tackling “external state-sponsored elements operating through local proxies”.
