Subsequently, the army chief received a comprehensive briefing on operational readiness and the prevailing security landscape, with a specific focus on border security measures along the Pak-Afghan border.

In Pakistan, the army chief is given too much publicity. In other countries, people do not know the name of their army chiefs.
