Chief of Army Staff General Syed Asim Munir on Monday visited troops deployed on the front lines along the Line of Control (LOC) in Sarian Sector as the nation observes the Kashmir Solidarity Day, Inter-Service Public Relations said in a statement.

He along with caretaker Prime Minister Anwaarul Haq Kakar and the prime minister of Azad Jammu and Kashmir visited Muzaffarabad where they laid a floral wreath at the Martyrs’ Monument and paid tribute to the sacrifices of the martyrs.

The leadership acknowledged that the fortitude, resilience and unwavering faith of Kashmiris in the face of the unabated brutality of Indian occupation forces in Indian-occupied Kashmir had been exemplary.

The humanitarian and security crises in the IIOJK seriously threaten regional peace and stability, they said.

The top officials reiterated Pakistan’s unwavering support for Kashmiris in their just struggle for the right to self-determination according to the UNSC resolutions.

“India is attempting to change the demography of IIOJK through illegal administrative and unilaterally imposed draconian laws and security clampdowns. Such machinations cannot suppress the will and the yearning of the Kashmiri people to attain their legitimate objectives.”

During his visit to the LOC, COAS Munir was briefed about the latest situation along the line as he appreciated the operational readiness, high morale, and effective response of troops to Indian CFVs.

The army chief reiterated that any aggression or violation of the territorial sovereignty of Pakistan will be responded to with full national resolve and military might.

“Pakistan Army is well versed with the full threat spectrum and is perpetually ready to respond effectively,” he said.

COAS Muri went on to highlight the Indian state-sponsored terrorism in Pakistan which now extended to the heinous targeting of individual Pakistani citizens on the country’s soil.

Such callous disregard for international law and norms of the international system was becoming a routine occurrence and India was now being called out openly by many countries in the world, exposing its sham credentials, he concluded.
