NEW DELHI: An unexpected statement came from India when Former Indian Army chief, General Bikram Singh, praised Pakistan’s new army chief Lt. Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa as a ‘true professional’.

“In the UN operations, General Bajwa’s performance was totally professional and outstanding. But a military officer’s conduct in the international environment is different from the way he conducts himself back home. There, he is governed by his country’s national interests,” General Singh was quoted as saying by the Times of India.

He described the time when Gen Bajwa had served under him on a United Nations assignment in Congo.

General Bikram Singh was the 25th Chief of Army Staff of the Indian Army and held the post until July 31, 2014. He was also the Chairman of the Chiefs of Staff Committee of the Indian armed forces.

“Gen Bajwa has commanded the important 10 Corps in Pakistan. So, he is acquainted with his country’s policy towards India. I believe there will be no let-up as far as Pakistan army’s Kashmir policy is concerned,” he added.

“He has served in all these areas (bordering India) and knows pretty well what kind of terrain and conditions exist on both sides,” the former Indian Army chief said, according to another story by NDTV.

Lt Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa, a career infantry officer belonging to the Baloch Regiment, has been chosen as Pakistan’s next Chief of Army Staff to replace General Raheel Sharif, who retires on Nov 29.
