ISLAMABAD: Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa on Monday emphasised jointness and integration between the three uniformed services.

Speaking to the pilots at PAF Base Mushaf (Sargodha), the army chief noted that “inter-service harmony and synergy” were “vital for operational success”, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement on Gen Bajwa’s visit to the base during which he flew a combat action simulation mission on an F-16 aircraft.

The Chief of Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Mujahid Anwar Khan, who flew in another aircraft on that occasion, also participated in the mission.

The two chiefs together took part in the manoeuvre.

The army chief praised the PAF for its dedication and professionalism.

Air Chief Marshal Khan, in his remarks, too stressed greater cooperation between the three services in training and operations.

The ISPR said PAF Base Mushaf holds claim to some of the most valiant actions in the history of air warfare and is a proud repository of capability, skills and traditions.
