According to a press release issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the consensus came during the 81st Formation Commanders Conference at the General Headquarters (GHQ) in Rawalpindi.Formation Commanders’ Conference is one of the military’s larger forums, which usually meets annually for discussion on strategy, operational and training matters, besides deliberating on organisational issues. It is attended by corps commanders, principal staff officers and all formation commanders of the army.Today’s conference was presided over by Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Asim Munir with Corps Commanders, Principal Staff Officers and all Formation Commanders of the Pakistan Army in attendance.Addressing the forum, the army chief reiterated that the Pakistan Army would remain committed towards the national obligations of safeguarding the “territorial integrity and sovereignty” of the country.“The people of Pakistan and their deep bondage with the Armed Forces are and will remain central to all our undertakings and events of 25th May were a clear manifestation of same,” the military’s media affairs wing quoted Gen Munir as saying.“Hostile forces and their abettors have been trying hard to create societal division and confusion through fake news and propaganda but all such designs will continue to be defeated with the full support of the nation, InshaAllah,” he asserted.The forum, the ISPR statement continued, concluded that “unfounded and baseless allegations on Law Enforcement Agencies and Security Forces for custodial torture, human rights abuses and stifling of political activities are meant to mislead the people and malign Armed Forces in order to achieve trivial vested political interests”.
