RAWALPINDI – Pakistan Army on Friday termed the recent meeting of its top commander with ISAF’s chief ‘constructive’ that discussed ‘current operational realities’.According to a joint statement from Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) and International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), the purpose of ISAF Commander General John Allen’s Wednesday meeting with the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani was to build on the positive momentum established during last month’s meeting of the Afghanistan-Pakistan-ISAF Tripartite Commission. During May’s tripartite gathering, which was the first such discussion in nearly a year, commanders and key staff discussed issues of tactical, operational and strategic importance including cross-border cooperation, a statement said.“The meeting served as an opportunity to renew everyone’s desire to address topics and issues of mutual importance. During this visit the commanders specifically discussed the mutual progress being made to eliminate terrorism, combat extremism and ensure that both Pakistan and Afghanistan’s territory is no longer used as safe haven for cross-border attacks. The commanders also discussed current operational realities.”“This visit helped advance our efforts to achieve the regional stability. Additionally, the meeting provided us perfect opportunity to refocus our attention on our continuing efforts to eliminate the corrosive effects of extremists operating on both sides of the border,” the statement quotes General Allen as having said. The joint statement did not mention if restoration of NATO supplies was discussed in the meeting.
