According to a statement issued by the Inter-Services Publication Relations (ISPR), General Raheel Sharif chaired a meeting of Corp Commanders at the General Headquarters.

The meeting comes a day after an alleged militant raid on an army base in occupied Kashmir that killed 17 officials of the Indian army.

Indian government officials have carried out a propaganda against Islamabad following the attack, accusing it of supporting terrorism.

The ISPR said the Corps Commanders Conference had an in depth review of external and internal security situation and operational preparedness of the Army.

Expressing his satisfaction over operational preparedness of the Army, COAS said that Armed Forces of Pakistan are fully prepared to respond to entire spectrum of direct and indirect threat.

“Pakistan’s Armed Forces together with our resilient nation have surmounted every challenge and will thwart any sinister design against integrity and sovereignty of Pakistan in future as well,” he said.

Commending the steady progress of Operation Zarb-e-Azb, the COAS paid glowing tributes to officers and men of Army, FC, Rangers and Police who are rendering supreme sacrifices while successfully fighting against terrorists across the length and breadth of the country.
