Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Bajwa said on Tuesday that Pakistan will continue to play its role for regional peace without compromising on national security, according to a statement from the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR). According to the ISPR, the army chief presided over the Corps Commanders Conference at the General Headquarters here.

In today’s session, the forum reviewed the strategic, regional and national security in relation to the borders, Line of Control and Indian occupied Kashmir. The army chief said that Pakistan is the lead participant in the region with significant contributions towards peace and stability, according to the ISPR. “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,” said the COAS.

The meeting also took into account the “provocative statements” of the Indian military leadership, said the ISPR, calling it “irresponsible rhetoric with implications on regional peace and stability”. The ISPR said that regional peace in relation to the ongoing tensions between the United States and Iran was also reviewed in the meeting. “The forum reviewed evolving security situation in the Middle East with reference to US-Iran standoff and its implications on regional peace and stability, stated the press release.

The Director-General Inter-Services Public Relations (DG-ISPR), Major General Asif Ghafoor took to Twitter on Tuesday to apprise of the Corps Commanders Conference (CCC) held earlier in the day under Army Chief Qamar Javed Bajwa.n  ISPR reported that matters pertaining to regional, internal and external security came under discussion between the military brass of the country. The corps commanders agreed that the statement of the Indian Army Chief earlier in the week was irresponsible and may cause serious damage to regional peace and stability.

The Chief of the Armed Staff (COAS) Qamar Javed Bajwa on the occasion said that Pakistan and its armed forces will continue to play a positive and constructive role in the region. The Army Chief also added that there shall be no compromise on the security and sovereignty of the country.
