RAWALPINDI: The Corps Commanders meeting at the General Headquarters in Rawalpindi took stock of the security situation of the country and the region along with a special attention being given to cross-border attacks, Express News reported on Friday.

The meeting, being chaired by Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaque Pervez Kayani discussed the security situation in the country.

They also discussed the frequent cross-border attacks along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.

The reported offer of cooperation with US and ISAF forces against militants holed up in the lawless border areas of Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Last month ISAF chief General John Allen had said that if the Pakistan Army launched an operation in North Waziristan Agency against militants, particularly the Haqqani network kind, “we are prepared to pay extra attention” to any spill over that may occur because of the operation.


hamid | 9 years ago | Reply i think time has come to launch an operation on TTP with full might because TTP doesn't believe in the constitution or law of Pakistan..they have a clear agenda to make whole Pakistan an "Islamic Emirate" based on the principles of Islam which they will make and which will suit them. For every single innocent loss of life they shamelessly take responsibility whether it's in Ramadan, or on any holy day.If Imran khan says that only innocents are killed in military operations then why Swat people feel freedom from the Gangs of Fazllualh's suffocation. The reason why Paksitan army is not successful in the Fata region especially against TTP is because they are still confused whether to attack or contain them.Elimination Of South Punjab taliban is key for their victory against TTP and for this to happen a Special task force of SSG and polie officials are needed and not a military operation. Once this illusion of containment ends and they will realise that TTP has gone out of control and it has become the existential threat , then only Pak Army can win this war.

This looks like a board meeting than an army corps meeting planning for an attack.
