Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa has said that Pakistan owes peace and stability to the selfless devotion and sacrifices of army officers who are the nation's real heroes.

The army chief said this during an investiture ceremony held at the General Headquarters in Rawalpindi, a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) stated.

Paying rich tribute to the martyrs, the COAS said, "There is no cause more noble than laying ones life for defence of motherland and sacrifices of our martyrs won’t go [to] waste."
