Pakistani Army Chief Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa has described the multi-billion-USD China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) as a guarantor of peace in the region.

Bajwa made the remarks in his address to a largely-attended gathering at the military headquarters in Rawalpindi on late Wednesday to mark Pakistan's Defense Day.

"We sincerely believe that CPEC is not only a guarantor of peace in Pakistan but the whole region," the Pakistani army chief said.

"Pakistan-China friendship is based on mutual respect, which is a shining example and CPEC is great manifestation of this relationship," he said.

Meanwhile, talking about Pakistan's role against terrorism, the general said Pakistan had been striving hard and making countless sacrifices in the war against terror for two decades.
