'We have irrefutable evidence of Indian state-sponsored terrorism in Pakistan'
RAWALPINDI (92 News) – Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa presided over the 237th Corps Commanders’ Conference at GHQ on Tuesday.
According to a press release issued by the ISPR, the forum reviewed geostrategic, regional and national security environment and discussed internal security, situation along borders, Line of Control (LOC) and atrocities in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IIOJ&K). It also took a comprehensive overview of the positive progress in Afghan peace process.
The forum showed serious concern in the wake of irrefutable evidence of Indian state-sponsored terrorism and efforts to destabilize Pakistan. "Indian efforts to sabotage CPEC, involvement in financing and training of terrorist organizations for fomenting unrest in Pakistan, especially in AJK, GB and Balochistan are an affront to peace and security in the region," forum emphasised.
Deliberating upon recent surge in Cease Fire Violations (CFVs) by the Indian Army, forum resolved to take all measures necessary to protect innocent population living along Line of Control (LOC) from Indian firing deliberately targeting civil population.
It expressed strong will, resolve and determination to defend the motherland against any misadventure.
The forum also deliberated upon the COVID-19 situation and measures required to confront the pandemic in the wake of the second wave.
The COAS specifically directed all commanders to ensure measures to support the national effort. "Pakistan Army with support of state institutions and the nation is fully prepared to thwart all internal and external challenges. It is our duty to transform these challenges into opportunities for the stability and prosperity of the people of Pakistan," the COAS concluded.
