Increased ceasefire violations (CFVs) along the LOC targeting civil population by the Indian military and blatant human rights violations in the occupied Jammu and Kashmir were noted as a major cause of concern for regional peace and stability, the ISPR said.
The conference also extensively deliberated upon prevalent situation inside the occupied territory and evolving situation in Afghanistan with an impact on Pakistan’s security dynamics.
The ISPR release further highlighted that COVID-19, locust control measures and support to national polio campaign also came under discussion during the meeting.
The corps commander conference expressed satisfaction over positive developments and indicators in all domains and improved security situation across the country.
COAS Qamar Javed Bajwa stressed upon the need to enhance combat readiness levels in the wake of evolving strategic and regional milieu.
“Fifth-generation warfare and hybrid application by anti-Pakistan elements against Pakistan’s vital interests must be safeguarded in synchronization with Government policies,” the army chief reiterated.
He lauded formations’ operational readiness and sustained efforts during internal security deployment in aid of civil power particularly the efforts during Muharram and flood relief duties.
