RAWALPINDI- Pakistan Army corps commander conference has reaffirmed the support to democracy and stressed over the need of finding political solution of the current stand-off between the federal government, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT). Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif presided over the Corps Commander Conference held at General Headquarters (GHQ) today which lasted for about four hours. According to ISPR, the conference expressed serious concern over the existing political crisis and the violent turn it has taken, resulting in large scale injuries and loss of lives. "The Army remains committed to playing its part in ensuring security of the state and will never fall short of meeting national aspirations," the press release stated.
General Raheel Sharif took the commanders into confidence over his meetings with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, PTI Chief Imran Khan and PAT Chief Tahirul Qadri last week. The critical meeting, which was scheduled to be held on Monday morning, was pushed up to today in light of rapidly unfolding events.
