Pakistani leadership said brewing humanitarian and security crises in the Indian Occupied Kashmir seriously threatens regional peace and stability. Pakistan would always stand with Kashmiris in their just struggle for the inalienable right to self determination in light of UNSC resolutions.
ISPR said New Delhi is attempting to change the demography of Illegally Occupied Kashmir through illegal administrative and unilaterally imposed draconian laws and security clampdowns.
It said such machinations cannot suppress the will and the yearning of the Kashmiri people to attain their legitimate objectives.
Gen Asim Munir was briefed about the latest situation along the Line of Control LoC and appreciated the operational readiness, high morale and effective response of troops to Indian CFVs.
In his address to troops, COAS said any aggression or violation of territorial sovereignty of Pakistan will be responded with full national resolve and military might. He said Pakistan Army is well versed with the full threat spectrum and is perpetually ready to respond effectively.
The top general mentioned the Indian state sponsored terrorism in Pakistan which now extended to heinous targeting of individual Pakistani citizens on our soil.
Army Chief added that such callous disregard for international law and norms of international system was becoming a routine occurrence and India was now being called out openly by many countries in the world, exposing her sham credentials.
Earlier on arrival, Chief of Army Staff was received by Commander Rawalpindi Corps.
