Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Syed Asim Munir presided over the 262nd Corps Commanders’ Conference (CCC) held at GHQ on Wednesday, ISPR said.

The conference paid rich tribute to all the martyrs, including civilians and security officials, the military media wing said, adding that the forum reiterated the anti-terrorism resolve, stressing that terrorists, their facilitators and abettors, working at the behest of hostile forces to destabilise Pakistan, will be dealt with the full might of the state.

The COAS stated that no compromise will be made on the Pak sovereignty and territorial integrity.

“Pakistan believes in peaceful co-existence, however, there would never be any compromise on the country’s sovereignty, national honour and aspirations of Pakistani people,” he said.

The ISPR added: “The forum was briefed on the callous Indian campaign of extra-territorial and extra-judicial killings, perpetuating state-sponsored terrorism and targeting Pakistani citizens.  

“The forum agreed that blatant violation of international laws by India and its real face be exposed to the world. The international community has already shown serious concerns over the criminal behaviour of India and its use of state apparatus for killing sprees around the world.“

It continued: “The forum reiterated unequivocal support for Palestine and the people of Gaza while noting the extremely negative fallout of the conflict and the potential to spill over in the wider region.

“The immediate need for a permanent ceasefire and enduring solution to the Palestinian question was unanimously recognised.

“Pakistan’s resolve to support the people of IIOJK for their right of self-determination was also reiterated. Pakistan would continue to morally, politically and diplomatically support Kashmir brothers and sisters till justice is served per relevant UNSC resolutions.”

The forum also discussed the deployment of the Pakistan Army to assist the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) in the peaceful conduct of the General Elections 2024.

“The Pak Army will perform assigned duties as per the constitutional mandate, under the guidelines of ECP. No one would be allowed to indulge in violence in the name of political activity and sabotage the quintessential democratic exercise of conduct of free and fair elections. “

The forum acknowledged and appreciated the steps taken to curb smuggling, hoarding, money laundering, power pilferage and illegal foreigners.

The participants emphasised that such actions and their positive impact on the economy and well-being of the people need to continue without any letup.

The forum was briefed on operational preparedness of the formations and the COAS asked formation commanders to continue their focus on the training, administration and morale of the soldiers.
