Corps Commanders discuss security situation in region

Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa chaired Corps Commander‘s Conference at the General Headquarters (GHQ) in Rawalpindi Wednesday to review the current security situation.

The forum was briefed on the national and regional security situation. The Forum expressed satisfaction on continued reduction in incidents of violence across the country, gradual positive effects of ongoing Afghan Peace Process along the Western Border and resolved to keep supporting the normalisation process through national institutions.

Noting the Indian aggression, the forum resolved to continue thwarting Indian designs and expose Indian targeting of innocent civilians in Kashmir and open support to terrorist outfits.

The Conference also discussed the Army’s ongoing support to Government against COVID-19, Locust threat, Polio campaign and ways to improve the same, within available resources.

It was underlined that COVID-19 can only be fought as a ‘whole of nation approach’ wherein every individual will have to play a role to ensure success through observation of basic procedures and discipline.

The meeting was significant due to the enhanced aggression by India along the Line of Control and their threatening statements towards Pakistan. Moreover, the region has also seen a border escalation between China and India which has resulted in many causalities on the Indian side and a further escalation can have resulted in a war between these two countries that would affect the whole region.

On Tuesday, all Services Chiefs also visited the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Directorate General and appreciated tireless efforts of ISI for National Security and expressed satisfaction over professional preparedness.

In a tweet, the ISPR said General Nadeem Raza, CJCSC, General Qamar Javed Bajwa, COAS, Admiral Zafar Mehmood Abbasi, CNS and Air Chief Marshal Mujahid Anwar Khan, CAS visited ISI headquarters. Lieutenant General Faiz Hamid, DG ISI received the CJCSC and Services Chiefs at Directorate General ISI.

A comprehensive briefing was given to the military leadership on regional security issues with a special focus on the situation of LOC & IOJ&K.
