Islamabad: Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Jawed Bajwa on Tuesday rejected allegations that Pakistan has been employing proxies from its soil.

"Pakistan itself is victim of state sponsored terrorism, it strongly rejects allegations of employing proxies from its soil," the Army chief said.

General Bajwa's statement came during his meeting with US National Security Adviser, Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster.

During the meeting, McMaster was briefed about Pakistan's war on terror and its contributions to regional and global stability. He acknowledged the Pakistan Army's efforts in eliminating terrorists and their infrastructure, the Inter-Services Public Relation said.

McMaster assured that the US will continue to support Pakistan in bringing peace and stability in the region, as well as the globe.

McMaster arrived in Islamabad on Monday on an unannounced visit, a day after he hinted the US could take a tougher stance on Pakistan.

It was the first visit by a top member of President Donald Trump's administration to Pakistan, and came after a stop in neighbouring Afghanistan where he suggested Washington may take a stronger line on Islamabad, for years seen as an unreliable US ally.
