COAS and PM Khan vow to defend nation at all costs

The Kashmir issue and matters regarding Pakistan's national security were also discussed. The ceaseless atrocities and human rights violations in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir were also a point of concern during the meeting.

On Thursday, a meeting was held between the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa, Director General Inter-Services Intelligence Lt Gen Faiz Hameed, and Prime Minister Imran Khan at the PM House to discuss the country’s external and internal security situation.

The Kashmir issue and matters regarding Pakistan’s national security were also discussed. The ceaseless atrocities and human rights violations in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir were also a point of concern during the meeting.

“Professional matters pertaining to Pakistan Army and External and internal security situation was discussed,” read an official statement by the Prime Minister’s Office.

“Concern was expressed over continuous human rights violation in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir.

“Ceasefire violations and frequent provocative measures from Indian forces along Line of Control came under discussion,” the statement added.

“It was resolved that the defense of the motherland will be ensured with the support of the entire nation at all costs,” the statement further said.
 
A few days prior to the meeting, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi had visited UAE for a meeting where he stated that India is planning to do a surgical strike against Pakistan by seeking “tacit approval” from “important players, whom it considers its partners.” India wants to turn the world community’s attention from its inauspicious domestic situation, said the foreign minister. 
 
On 18th December, Indian troops attacked a UN vehicle in the Chirikot sector of the LoC.
 

In a series of tweets, Prime Minister Imran Khan expressed his condemnation of the attack on the UN vehicle carrying observers from the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP), by Indian troops at LoC.

This incident has highlighted India’s disregard for international law and the United Nations, Khan stated. He further went on to state that the attack was intentional because there were clear UN markings and a flag on the vehicle.

“In complete violation of international law, India’s deliberate firing at the LoC on the UNMOGIP vehicle, despite clear UN markings and flying blue UN flag, shows India’s total disregard for all international norms of acceptable state behavior and respect for international law and the UN. Pakistan strongly condemns this rogue behavior,” tweeted Khan.

“I want to again warn the world community, as India’s internal problems mount, especially economic recession, growing farmers’ protests and mishandling of Covid-19, the Modi government will divert from the internal mess by conducting a false flag operation against Pakistan,” warned Khan.

“Already, in 2020 alone, there have been 3,000 Indian ceasefire violations along the LoC and Working Boundary, by unprovoked firing deliberately targeting civilians – resulting in 276 casualties, of which 92 were women and 68 children.”

Khan reiterated that Pakistan will not hold back if India thinks of conducting a false flag operation against Pakistan. India will have to face a strong national Pakistani resolve and will be given an equal response.

 “I am making absolutely clear to the international community that if India was to be reckless enough to conduct a false flag operation against Pakistan, it would confront a strong national Pakistani resolve and be given a befitting response at all levels of the threat. Make no mistake.”
