RAWALPINDI: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Tuesday presided over a Corps Commanders Conference at General Headquarters in Rawalpindi.
According to the statement of International Service Interagency Public Relations (ISPR), the forum reviewed geographic strategy, regional and national security environment, and discussed internal security, border situation, LOC and IIOJ&K atrocities.
The forum also gave a comprehensive overview of the positive progress made in the Afghanistan peace process.
The meeting showed serious concern in the wake of irrefutable evidence of Indian state sponsored terrorism and efforts to destabilize Pakistan. Indian efforts to sabotage CPEC, involvement in financing and training of terrorist organizations for fomenting unrest in Pakistan, especially in AJK, GB and Balochistan are an affront to peace and security in the region, the forum emphasised.
Deliberating upon recent surge in ceasefire violations by the Indian Army, forum resolved to take all measures necessary to protect innocent population living along the Line of Control (LOC) from Indian firing deliberately targeting civil population. Forum expressed strong will, resolve and determination to defend the motherland against any misadventure.
The forum also discussed the COVID-19 situation and the measures needed to respond to the influenza pandemic after the second wave.
On this occasion, COAS General Kamal Javid Javid Bawa specifically instructed all commanders to ensure that measures are taken to support national operations.
He said that the Pakistan Army, with the support of state institutions and the country, is fully prepared to stop all internal and external challenges.
“It is our duty to transform these challenges into opportunities for the stability & prosperity of the people of Pakistan,” the army chief added.
