Col Zaman said the history of FC was full of unforgettable sacrifices for the country’s defence. It was a committed force which always showed exceptional performance in war areas across FATA and it would continue fighting miscreants and anti-state elements until they were eliminated from the region, he added.
He congratulated the recruits on completion of their training course and asked them to fulfill their responsibility with commitment. Complete peace and writ of the government had been restored in the whole agency because of the joint efforts of security forces and local people, he added.
He said that law and order situation was under control and no one would be allowed to disturb peace in the agency.
