Counter-insurgency training facilities developed: Kayani
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Army has developed a full range of counter-insurgency training facilities tailored to train troops for low-intensity conflicts, Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Ashfaq Kayani said on Saturday.
“Therefore, except for very specialised weapons and equipment and [advanced] technology, no generalised foreign training is required,” he said. The army chief said Pakistan Army was fully capable of handling any situation and that outside advice or comments would be counter-productive.
He said strategic decisions regarding where, when and how many troops are deployed in each operation or sector was “always a Pakistani decision based on objective analysis and our full understanding of threat spectrum”.
