RAWALPINDI: The Army’s top brass held a meeting at the General Headquarters in Rawalpindi Wednesday under the leadership of Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Gen Raheel Sharif, DawnNews reported.

The meeting focused on the country’s overall security situation. Moreover, internal and external threats to national security were also reviewed in the meeting.

According to sources, Gen Sharif took the corps commanders into confidence over talks with the political leadership over the country's national security situation.

The security situation on western borders was also discussed in the meeting.

Separately, the meeting also focused on ongoing peace talks between the government and the Taliban.

The timing of the meeting was seen as important after Gen Raheel’s comments at a Special Services Group base in Tarbela that the army would “resolutely preserve its own dignity and institutional pride” sent shockwaves in government circles.
