During the conference held at the General Headquarters in Rawalpindi on Tuesday, the forum reviewed operational readiness and evolving threat spectrum in the context of external and internal security of the country.

Complimenting the efforts put in by all formations to maintain a high level of combat readiness particularly in the wake of evolving regional security situation, the CAOS took special notice of the continued atrocities in Indian occupied Kashmir (IOK) as illegal actions of August 5, 2019, complete one year next month.

“[The] forum paid tribute to brave Kashmiris for their legitimate struggle for freedom,” read the tweet posted by military’s media wing, Inter-services Public Relations (ISPR).

Tensions remain high in the disputed Himalayan region after New Delhi’s controversial decision last year to revoke the territory’s decades-old semi-autonomous status.

The valley, which has been under a curfew since August 5, remains cut off from the rest of the world due to the continued blockade and suspension of internet, mobile and landline phones, and closure of TV channels.

A humanitarian crisis has been looming in the valley as people face an acute shortage of food, medicines, and other commodities.

COAS urges implementation on COVID-19 SOPs

Gen Bajwa lauded the efforts in aid of civil administration during the fight against COVID -19 and locust attacks, that has threatened the country’s agricultural growth.

Stressing the need to exercise maximum care with respect during Eid-ul-Azha and Muharram to maintain the gains achieved in countering the pandemic, the forum also appreciated efforts of doctors, healthcare workers, paramedics for their selfless contributions in the battle against the virus across the country.
