GILGIT: Army Chief General Raheel Sharif on Thursday warned India’s premier and its spy agency that Pakistan knows its enemies and is fully aware of their nefarious designs.

Making a special mention of Indian PM Narendra Modi and the country's intelligence agency, Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), Gen Raheel assured the nation that the country’s frontiers are totally secure.

The army chief was speaking at a seminar in Gilgit-Baltistan (GB) to highlight the progress on the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

While addressing the participants, Gen Raheel said: “I am confident that the country is moving in right direction and we will ensure foolproof security of CPEC.”

He acknowledged and appreciated the courage and determination of Gilgit-Baltistan's people and assured them that “China is working for the welfare and development of the region”.

“I am confident that Gilgit-Baltistan will also develop like the Chinese area across the border,” he asserted.

The army chief also appreciated the courage of local youth in Gilgit-Baltistan and said “Pakistan Army is their army”.

Gen Raheel further said that “Pakistan Army will provide foolproof security to CPEC.” He showed satisfaction over the performance of the armed forces in Operation Zarb-i-Azb.

“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,” he said.
