In a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the COAS presided over 228th Corp Commander Conference at the General Headquarters (GHQ).
During the meeting, the forum reviewed gee strategic, regional and national security environment and discussed internal security, situation along borders, Line of Control (LOC) and Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (I0J&K).
The forum also reviewed evolving security situation in the Middle East with reference to US-Iran stand-off and its implications on regional peace and stability.
On the occasion, Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa said that Pakistan is the lead participant in the region with significant contributions towards peace and stability.
“We shall continue to play our responsible and positive role towards this end without compromising national security and defence of the motherland at whatever cost,” the COAS said.
