Conference underway at GHQ

Chief of the Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani has called the corps commanders conference at the General Headquarters in Rawalpindi in the wake of the strained Pak-US ties and aggressive statements from the US civilian and military leadership against Pakistan, a private TV reported Sunday.
According to the report, the military brass will discuss the matters related to national security and the regional situation.
According to an ISPR statement, a Special Corps Commanders Conference will review the prevailing security situation in the country. All Corps Commanders and Principal Staff Officers are attending the meeting.
Yesterday, US Central Command chief General James Mattis met the COAS at the General Headquarters.
General Kayani expressed grave concern over infiltration of militants from the Afghanistan side and made it clear that Pakistan would not tolerate any such incursions in the future. He asked General Mattis to make sure that the Afghan soil is not used against Pakistan.
The COAS also lodged strong protest with Gen Mattis over the statements of US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta and Admiral Mullen calling the statements contrary to ground realities. He said the sacrifices rendered by Pakistan in the war on terror demonstrated Pakistans commitment to eliminate militancy.
