GHQ meeting reaffirms pledges to defeat hostile agencies

A corps commanders’ meeting was held in GHQ on Thursday. The military commanders pledged to defeat the designs of hostile agencies through ‘whole of the nation approach’.

It was discussed how hostile agencies working in Pakistan are trying to destabilize and slow down the CPEC project along with security and development of Pakistan.

With focus on internal security of the country, Pak-Afghan border tension and ceasefire violation by India were also reviewed in this forum.

Earlier in the day, Pakistan and India established a hotline contact through the directors general of military operations (DGMOs). In which India expressed concerns about terrorist movements along the LOC.

ISPR’s Director General Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor tweeted that Pakistan’s DGMO strongly rejected Indian concerns over the movement of terrorists along the Line of Control (LoC).  “The Indian army [has been] asked to look inward and share evidence.”

The Corps Commanders meeting took place, while similar meeting was being held by parliamentary parties to discuss the revival of military courts. These courts had been established after the terrorist attack on Army Public Shool in Peshawar on Dec 2014.

This year in January, military courts concluded their purpose after a two year period. With reference to the commanders in conference, ISPR said, “The forum expressed its confidence in the performance of the military courts.  However, the decision for reinstatement of the military courts rests with the government.”

Military courts were part of the National Action Plan (NAP) taken against terrorism. The military commanders emphasised that under the on-going operation Raddul Fasaad (RuF), NAP implementation should be expedited. “Through RuF operation, NAP implementation needs to be expedited jointly by respective stakeholders for lasting peace and stability.”

While appreciating the combined efforts of Pakistan Air Force (PAF) and Navy, General Bajwa alleged, “The RuF is a comprehensive across-the-board operation against terrorists and terrorism and not against any particular race, sect or group.”
