Top Military Brass Reviews Pak-India Escalation, Geo-strategic Situation

RAWALPINDI: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Qamar Javed Bajwa chaired 219th Corps Commander Conference held on Thursday at GHQ.

Forum reviewed the geo-strategic environment and situation due to ongoing Pakistan India standoff. Forum expressed strong will, resolve and determination to defend the motherland against any misadventure or aggression.

Forum expressed concerns on increased Indian atrocities in IOK post-Pulwama incident and continued deliberate targeting of civilians along Line of Control by Indian occupation forces.

Continuity of such brutalities are only fuelling the fire and need to be stopped in the interest of regional peace which also merits the world’s attention, forum concluded. Forum also discussed the progress of the National Action Plan 2014 (NAP).

COAS, appreciating morale and performance of the forces, support from the nation and above all blessings of Almighty Allah, directed for the continued state of vigilance and alertness so as to be prepared for the response to any threat. COAS also directed to further the efforts in line with decisions of the government to accelerate implementation of NAP while rendering full assistance to other state institutions.

“Pakistan is on the positive trajectory of peace, stability and progress. No one can make us budge through the use or threat of use of force. Similarly, policy and the right of use of force shall remain the prerogative of the state alone”, COAS concluded.
