RAWALPINDI (92 News) – The two-day 242nd Corps Commanders’ Conference Chaired by Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa was held at General Headquarters on Wednesday.

According to a press release issued by the ISPR, the participants took comprehensive review of global, regional and domestic security environment.

The forum was given a detailed briefing on evolving situation along Pak-Afghan international border, its implications on Pakistan’s internal security, particularly in the western zone, and measures being taken to tackle emerging challenges.

The COAS expressed satisfaction over stringent measures being taken for ensuring effective border control as part of the comprehensive Border Management Regime and asked for high-level vigil along the western border.

Reinforcing Pakistan’s vision for peace, connectivity and shared prosperity, General Qamar Bajwa said: "We have made every possible effort to facilitate Afghan peace process leading towards a negotiated settlement with utmost sincerity and will continue to do so. Being a collective responsibility, all stakeholders have to play their part positively for enduring peace in Afghanistan which is pivotal for stability in the region. Misperceptions and making of a scapegoat must be avoided to counter designs of spoilers."

Taking holistic view of the multifarious security challenges faced by Pakistan in various domains in the evolving milieu, the forum underscored the need for adopting whole-of-nation-approach.

The COAS commended formations for maintaining high standards of operational readiness and providing sustained support to civil administration during ongoing national efforts against Covid-19, monsoons and national polio drive.
