‘Pakistan continues to work for stability and peace’

‘Pakistan continues to work for stability and peace’

The successful execution of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor will enable Pakistan to emerge as a financial and political powerhouse in the region. The project holds immense importance for all stakeholders and committed efforts have been put in to push towards fruition.

These comments were made by Sindh Governor Mohammad Zubair in a meeting on Friday with a 19-member delegation of the Royal College of Defence Studies delegation led by Major General (Retd) Simon Leslie.

The delegation included military and civil government officials from Great Britain and other countries, and the governor appreciated RCDS’ offers to train professionals from no less than 50 countries across the globe.

Zubair said challenges were emerging at a steady pace on the international arena and such times called for enhancing joint trainings of officers from different countries.

Sharing in detail the economic condition of the country and its relationships with neighboring countries, the governor said Pakistan’s contributions in the war against terrorism had been exemplary and one of the main causes of increased regional stability over recent years. 

“In fact, we have paid a heavy price for being on the frontlines in the global war against terrorism,” said Zubair. “Pakistan still continues to play a crucial role in helping restore peace and stability in the world. CPEC is also an extension of these efforts.”

Speaking of Sindh’s significance, he said the province had an agrarian economy and also a significant industrial base.

“Sindh holds immense importance due to its two major ports. Moreover, the geographical significance of Karachi further enhances the potential for foreign investment in the province,” said Zubair.

Major Gen (Retd) Simon Leslie appreciated the role played by Pakistan in the war against terrorism said army and civil officers from Pakistan were regularly among the trainees at RCDS. 

He said the college was established in 1927 and offers refresher courses to the officers, mainly from armed forces, from 50 countries.
