Chairman of European Union (EU) Military Committee General Michail Kostarakos has held talks with Pakistani civil and military leaders on defense cooperation with special focus on counter-terrorism efforts, officials said.


The EU military chief met Defense Minister Khurram Dastgir Khan in the garrison city of Rawalpindi and also called on the Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa at the military headquarters, official statements said on Thursday.


Dastgir said Pakistan strongly condemns terrorism in all its forms and manifestations and reiterated Islamabad's zero tolerance against use of its soil to promote terrorism against any country, a defense ministry statement said.


"Pakistan has been providing multi-faceted support to international community in the war against terrorism," the statement quoted the defense minister as saying.


He said Pakistan is committed to stability and peace in the region with particular focus on its relation with Afghanistan, adding a peaceful Afghanistan is not only in the interest of Pakistan but also the whole region.


The minister said Pakistan attaches great importance to its relations with EU and its relations draw strength from a shared objective of global peace and security.


Kostarakos expressed the desire to enhance cooperation between Pakistan and EU, according to the statement. He highlighted the importance of better communication and interaction at various levels under a mutually agreed framework.


Kostarakos and Bajwa also discussed regional security issues and matters of mutual interest, the military said.


The visiting official appreciated the resolve of Pakistan Army and its continuing efforts towards fighting terrorism and bringing peace in the region, an army statement said.
