General Qamar Javed Bajwa, Chief of Army staff spent his day visiting Headquarters 10 Corps Rawalpindi and troops on forward locations on the Line of Control.
He was briefed in detail about prevailing security situation at LOC in view of recent violations and escalation by Indian troops and own response. Appreciating troops for their operational readiness and befitting response given to unprovoked Indian firing in violation of cease fire agreement, COAS directed them to keep highest level of vigil at all times.
Each violation of any kind must be responded with full force in the most effective manner. COAS said Indian aggressive posture solely aims to divert attention of the world from atrocities being committed by their troops in Indian occupied Kashmir.
He said that core issue of Kashmir will have to be resolved between the two countries in the line with UN resolutions and aspirations of the people of Kashmir, for lasting peace in the region.
Lt Gen Malik Zafar Iqbal, Comd of 10 Corps received COAS Corps headquarter and later accompanied him during his visit to LoC.
