DG ISPR Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor to address a press conference at 3pm today
RAWALPINDI (92 News) – DG ISPR Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor will address a key press conference at 3pm on Friday.
He will present the viewpoint of the Pakistan armed forces on important matters.
The press conference comes at a time when Pakistan and India face heightened tensions after the Pulwama attack in the Indian Occupied Kashmir. The attack followed New Delhi’s blaming of Islamabad for the incident, which was strongly denied by the Pakistani leadership.
Earlier on Thursday, Prime Minister Imran Khan directed Pakistan Army to respond ‘decisively and comprehensively’ to any aggression or misadventure by India.
The prime minister issued the directives during a meeting of the National Security Committee, which discussed geo-strategic and national security environment, and situation arising after the Pulwama incident.
Prior to the NSC meeting, PM Khan also held a meeting with Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa.
Some 44 Indian paramilitary personnel were killed when an explosives-packed van rammed into a convoy transporting 2,500 security forces in Pulwama.
