Speaking on the occasion, the army chief said that the military cannot afford to ignore preparations and readiness for conventional response despite our commitments in the ongoing Operation Radd ul Fasaad.

COAS said he takes pride in leading an army which by the grace of Allah Almighty has served the nation by successfully combating terrorism and is prepared to respond to any conventional threat on borders for defence of the motherland.
