Islamabad, Oct 13: Pakistan's newly-appointed Vice Army Chief General Ashfaq Kiyani has said there would be ''no let-up'' in Islamabad's efforts in the US-led ''war on terror'', Geo TV reported today.

Gen Kiyani reiterated that there would be no abatement in war against terrorism ''till it is taken to its logical conclusion'', an army statement quoted him as saying during a visit to the northwestern city of Peshawar yesterday.

''He gave specific directions to all commanders with regard to the ongoing operation in Waziristan agencies and exhorted them to spare no effort in eradicating the menace of extremism,'' it said.

General Ashfaq Kiyani is set to take over as head of the military by November 15 provided that the Supreme Court upholds Musharraf's sweeping victory in October 6 presidential election.

Gen Kiyani, the former chief of Inter-Services Intelligence, officially took over as vice chief of army staff on October 8 and is termed as Musharraf's ''successor designate''.
