RAWALPINDI: The corps commanders’ conference (CCC) expressed complete satisfaction, Tuesday, over countering hostile intelligence agencies’ design to disrupt peace and progress particularly in Gilgit Baltistan (GB) and Balochistan — which lay exposed to the entire world thus vindicating Pakistan’s stance on role of hostile agencies in training and funding of terrorists.

According to an Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) press release, the chief of army staff (COAS) general (Gen.) Qamar Javed Bajwa chaired the meeting of the CCC in the garrison city.

The participants undertook a comprehensive review of regional and domestic security environment with special focus on situation along borders, internal security and other professional matters of the army.

In the backdrop of Kashmir solidarity day, the forum positively noted increasing realisation at international forums about worsening humanitarian and security crisis in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).

The CCC reaffirmed Pakistan’s unwavering support to resilient Kashmiri people for the just struggle for right to self determination in accordance with relevant united nations (UN) security council (UNSC) resolutions.

Dilating upon the Afghan peace process, the participants expressed hope for peaceful and stable Afghanistan for regional peace and stability.

The commanders noted that the enormity of the security challenges warrants a holistic national response, keeping national interest above everything else. The participants underscored the need to ensure continuous operational preparedness to thwart any possible misadventure from adversary.

The forum deliberated upon the improved security situation in erstwhile federally administered tribal areas (FATA) in detail and concluded requirement for early implementation of reforms in newly merged tribal districts especially towards enabling law enforcement agencies’ (LEAs) apparatus to achieve sustainable peace in the area.

The dividends of improved security situation including return of international cricket in the country is a result of numerous sacrifices rendered and challenges overcome to eliminate extremism and terrorism from Pakistan.

“We will stay the course InshaAllah (God willing),” COAS Gen. Bajwa concluded.
