The Corps Commanders’ Conference has resolved that all terrorists, their facilitators and abettors, working on the behest of hostile forces to destabilise Pakistan will be dealt with “full might of the state”.

This came during the Corps Commanders’ Conference presided over by Chief of Army Staff General Syed Asim Munir, according to the Inter-Services Public Relations statement issued on Thursday.

The forum paid tribute to the sacrifices of martyrs including officers and men of the armed forces, law enforcement agencies and citizens. Prayers were offered for the martyrs and it was reiterated that the state and armed forces would continue to hold the martyrs and their families in the highest esteem, ever honouring them with “utmost respect and dignity”.

Commemoration of Defence and Martyrs Day on September 6 across the country by all segments of society was appreciated for which the armed forces remain thankful to the nation.

Participants reiterated the army’s resolve to defend the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Pakistan against all kinds of direct and indirect threats.

“Forum re-affirmed that inimical propagandists’ desperate attempts to cause a wedge between the state institutions and public are indicative of their mounting desperation and will only result in more humiliation of such elements, InshaAllah,” stated the statement.

Officials briefed the participants on the prevalent geo-strategic environment, challenges to national security and strategy in response to evolving threats.

“The forum resolved that all terrorists, their facilitators and abettors, working on the behest of hostile forces to destabilise Pakistan will be dealt with the full might of the state,” it added.

The need for speedy development of the economic potential of newly merged districts (NMDs) and border districts of Balochistan for sustainable peace and growth was also emphasised.

COAS stressed the need for maintaining high standards of professionalism and motivation during operations and achieve excellence during the training of the formations. He commended the commanders for their constant focus on the well-being of their soldiers and maintenance of morale which constituted the foundation of the army’s operational readiness.

The forum reiterated to continue full support of ongoing efforts in uplifting socioeconomic growth under the umbrella of the Special Investment Facilitation Council and assisting the government in curbing all illegal activities which hamper economic stability, growth and investors’ confidence.
