ISLAMABAD: The Corps Commander Conference held, on Tuesday, while taking notice of the recent cross-border firing incidents from Afghanistan, asked Kabul to take effective border control measures.

During its 241st Corps Commanders Conference chaired by Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa at the GHQ, the commanders undertook a comprehensive review of the global, regional and domestic security environment with particular focus on the situation along the borders especially the Line of Control/Working Boundary and Pak-Afghan border.

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the forum reaffirmed Pakistan’s support for regional peace and stability, while reviewing recent developments in the Afghan peace process and its attendant effects on the security situation, especially along the Pak-Afghan border.

The top military brass also reviewed the situation in newly-merged districts of KP and Balochistan and stressed upon "fast-paced socio-economic development of these areas to capitalise on the hard-earned peace to bring an enduring stability," according to the statement. Taking serious note of the recent cross-border firing incidents emanating from Afghanistan and regrouping of terrorist leadership and outfits across the border, the meeting hoped that Afghanistan's soil will not be used against Pakistan.

"In light of emerging regional security situation, Pakistan has taken effective border management measures and the same is expected from Afghanistan to deny any space to spoilers of peace," the forum emphasized.

The meeting was apprised of the evolving operational imperatives and corresponding strategy to meet upcoming challenges.

Gen Bajwa "expressed satisfaction over Army’s operational readiness in view of the emerging security threats," the ISPR said.

During the meeting, the army chief appreciated the formations for all-out support to the civil administration during the ongoing third wave of Covid-19 which he said had "contributed in bringing significant reduction in spread of the pandemic and controlling its adverse effects".
