Pakistan "harbours no aggression towards anyone", said the country's powerful army chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani at the launch ceremony of a book on an army officer who was killed battling Indian tanks in 1971.

General Kayani Friday said that Pakistan is a peace loving nation and focus of its armed forces always remained on defending and serving the country, reported Associated Press of Pakistan.

“We are a peace loving nation and harbour no aggression towards anyone but at the same time we value our freedom and independence more than anything else,” he said at the General Headquarters in Rawalpindi.

He made the remarks at the launch ceremony of book on the life of Major Shabir Sharif.

"What more can a solider desire" is an account of Major Shabir's acts of bravery during the two Pakistan-India wars of 1965 and 1971. The major was killed Dec 6, 1971 while firing and engaging Indian tanks.

General Kayani said the armed forces are fully prepared to ensure sovereignty and dignity of the country.

On the war against terror, the general said: "The young officers have set examples for us and we should acknowledge the dedication of our brave soldiers who are taking pride by laying their lives for the nation."
