The participants discussed a range of security-related issues including fast-paced developments in the realm of strategic and conventional policies, the importance of peace in Afghanistan for sustainable development in the region, the shared challenges faced, the work plan of the tri-services and operational preparedness of the armed forces.

The services chiefs expressed complete satisfaction and full confidence in the readiness of the defence forces. The top military leadership also reaffirmed the resolve of the armed forces to respond to the entire spectrum of threats in the most befitting manner in line with a comprehensive security strategy.

They also lauded the sacrifices of security forces in the fight against terrorism.

The JSHQ is functioning with a national perspective that seeks to preserve, protect and promote Pakistan’s defence and national security, the CJCSC was quoted as saying.

The JCSC chairman also applauded the “jointness” of the Pakistan Armed Forces in meeting all defence and security challenges faced by Pakistan.
