Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Wednesday said that enhanced defence ties between Pakistan and Australia could act as an impetus for broader cooperation, especially in the fields of education, investment and regional connectivity.

The army chief's remarks came during his meetings with the Australia's civil and military leadership during a two-day official visit to Canberra.

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Gen Qamar held meetings with Australian Senate's Committee for Foreign and Defence Affairs head Senator David Fawcett, Chief of Defence Staff Air Chief Marshall Mark Binskin and Air Chief Air Marshal Gavin Davies.

Australia appreciated Pakistan's contributions and achievements in the War on Terror and acknowledged sacrifices of the Pakistani nation and its army, the military's media wing added.

Gen Bajwa also interacted with the dignitaries at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute and the Office of National Assessment, both of which advice the Australian government on myriad policy issues.
