General Joseph Dunford, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, on Tuesday spoke to his Pakistani counterpart General Zubair Mahmood Hayat to talk about the “modern-day safety surroundings” in Pakistan, the Pentagon stated, amid the spike in Indo-Pak tensions following the Pulwama terror assault.
The telephonic talk is the highest level of contact between the 2 armies a day after India bombed and destroyed Jaish-e-Mohammed’s (Jem) largest terrorist training camp in Balakot in Pakistan’s restive Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, about 80-km from the Line of Control (LoC) early Tuesday, killing a “very massive variety” of terrorists, running shoes and senior commanders.
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph F Dunford, Jr spoke today with Pakistan Chief of Defence Gen Zubair Mahmood Hayat. The senior leaders mentioned the modern protection environment in Pakistan,” Joint Staff Spokesperson Col. Patrick S. Ryder said in a quick announcement.
No different details were right away to be had.
Forty Central Reserve Police Force personnel were killed in a suicide assault via Pakistan-primarily based JeM in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district on February 14, sparking outrage in India and global condemnation.
Over the years, regardless of a deterioration in US-Pakistan bilateral ties, Gen Dunford has maintained a very good working dating with both his Pakistani counterpart Gen Hayat and Pakistan Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa.
