Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa has expressed satisfaction over the quality and timing of the newly-constructed border forts and fences along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, said the military’s media wing.

The army chief visited North Waziristan Agency (NWA) and laid floral wreath at the Shuhada (martyrs) monument in Miranshah, a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Wednesday.

He visited the Afghan border areas, where border forts and fences have recently been erected to secure the porous border.

The COAS was also briefed about the security situation, rehabilitation of temporarily displaced persons (TDPs) and progress on socio-economic development projects in the agency.

Commander Peshawar Corps Lieutenant-General Khalid Nazir Butt was also present during the visit.
