On Thursday, Chief of Army Staff General Asim Munir reaffirmed the resolve of the Pakistan Army to defend the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country against all threats. General Munir made the statement during his visit to forward areas along the Line of Control (LoC) today, according to a press release issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
During his visit, General Munir met with officers and troops on the forward positions and was briefed on the situation along the LoC and the operational preparedness of the deployed formations. He emphasized upon the troops to extend all-out support to the local population and to discharge their duties with utmost sincerity and devotion.
Furthermore, the army chief appreciated officers and men for maintaining continued vigil, remarkable operational preparedness, and a high state of morale. He also reiterated the army’s commitment to support the just cause of Kashmiris and to seek a resolution of Jammu and Kashmir in accordance with the resolutions of the United Nations.
Pakistan has been facing a range of security challenges, including cross-border terrorism and separatist movements, which have threatened its territorial integrity and sovereignty. The Pakistan Army has been playing a crucial role in maintaining stability and security in the country, particularly in the face of external and internal threats.
The LoC is a de facto border that separates the Indian-administered Kashmir from the Pakistani-administered Kashmir. The disputed region has been a source of conflict between the two countries for decades, with both claiming the territory as their own.
Pakistan’s position on the Kashmir issue has been consistent, with the country advocating for the right of self-determination for the Kashmiri people and calling for a peaceful resolution to the conflict. The Pakistan Army’s commitment to supporting the just cause of Kashmiris and seeking a resolution in accordance with the UN resolutions is reflective of this position.
In conclusion, General Munir’s visit to the forward areas along the LoC and his statement reaffirming the Pakistan Army’s commitment to defending the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country against all kinds of threats, as well as supporting the just cause of Kashmiris, highlights the importance of national security and stability in Pakistan.
