Pakistan Air Force (PAF) is a capable and professional force, which will prove its mettle in safeguarding the country’s territorial integrity. Pakistan is a peace-loving country and has always strived for peace and would continue to play aresponsible role in the comity of nations. However, our enemy must know that Pakistan’s aerial defence (InshaAllah) is impregnable,” said the PM while addressing the Graduation ceremony of 130 General Duty Pilots (GDP), 75 Engineering, 89 Air Defence Courses and Commissioning of 133 GDP, 79 Engineering and 14 A&SD (Administration and Special Duty) Courses, at PAF Academy Risalpur.
To the graduates, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said the academy had equipped them with the requisite training and skill to embark on a demanding career and defending the aerial boundaries of the country.
“You should, therefore, endeavour constantly to make optimum use of this training with a desire to further enhance your professional competence,” he advised the graduating cadets.
PM said there was no greater honour and prestige than choosing to defend and serve the country.
He said that PAF had a history of legendary officers whom the graduates must emulate as role models.
“You can acknowledge the great heroes by following in their footsteps, which would be a just tribute to them,” he added.
The Prime Minister urged the graduates to combine sound professionalism with qualities of good leadership.
“Your subordinates will look up to you for inspiration and guidance. This requires an exemplary personal conduct, display of courage, determination and resolution on your part,” he said.
