RAWALPINDI: Corps Commanders on Tuesday took serious note of the malicious propaganda by Indian military and expressed resolve to take all necessary measures to safeguard Pakistan’s territorial integrity, said Inter-Services Public Relations.

This resolve was expressed at 244th Corps Commanders’ Conference held in Rawalpindi today (Tuesday) with Chief of the Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa in the chair.

Speaking on the occasion, COAS Bajwa said the baseless propaganda only reflects their frustration and an attempt to divert attention from their internal contradictions especially gross human rights violations, being committed in IIOJ&K.

The forum took comprehensive review of evolving security situation in the region with particular focus on Border Management and Internal Security. It was apprised on measures being taken to thwart nefarious designs of inimical forces to destabilise Pakistan and spoil the hard-earned peace and stability.

The forum also expressed concern over the brewing humanitarian cum security situation in Afghanistan concluding that meaningful engagement and sustained support by international community is imperative for paving way for peace and stability in Afghanistan and the larger region.

The Army Chief appreciated operational preparedness of formations and focus on training including enhanced collaboration with foreign militaries and conduct of joint exercises in the Operational and Counter Terrorism domain.

Earlier, Pakistan had categorically rejected India’s claim at the United Nations that Jammu and Kashmir is its integral part, saying the state was an internationally recognised disputed territory.

“Jammu and Kashmir neither is a so-called ‘integral’ part of India, nor is it India’s internal matter,” Pakistani delegate Saima Saleem had said in response to an Indian delegate assertion that by raising the Kashmir dispute in his speech to the UN General Assembly, Prime Minister Imran Khan had brought in “matters internal to my country.”
