The military's top brass on Tuesday discussed the prevailing security situation of the country and "expressed its resolve for continued support to all state institutions for ensuring writ of the state", an Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) statement said.

The 215th Corps Commanders’ Conference, held at the General Headquarters in Rawalpindi, was presided over by Chief of the Army Staff Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa.

According to the press release, the meeting reiterated that the country's peace, stability and prosperity lie in the rule of law.

"[The] Forum reviewed [the] geo-strategic environment and security situation of the country," it read.

The progress of the armed forces' ongoing operations was also deliberated upon, including fencing along the Pak-Afghan border and the evolving situation along the eastern border, especially Indian "ceasefire violations deliberately targeting innocent citizens".

The forum, which meets on a monthly basis, pledged its support towards the establishment of enduring peace in the country and the region, the statement said.
