Par­tic­i­pants of the meet­ing dis­cussed the in­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tion of the coun­try at length and re­viewed the progress of Op­er­a­tion Zarbe-Azb and In­tel­li­gence-based Oper­a­tions (IBOs). Af­ter the state of readi­ness and vigil by troops along the Line of Con­trol (LOC) was re­viewed, the army chief said, "We are fully pre­pared to re­spond to en­tire spec­trum of threat."

While re­fer­ring to peace talks be­tween the Afghan gov­ern­ment and the Tal­iban, the army chief also said it was the only cred­i­ble way to achieve last­ing peace. He also said that de­trac­tors and spoil­ers were against peace and pros­per­ity of Afghanistan and the re­gion.

Mean­while, Sindh Rangers - a paramil­i­tary force of Pak­istan car­ry­ing out tar­geted oper­a­tions against ter­ror­ists along­side Po­lice in Karachi - said that mis­cre­ants were busy hatch­ing con­spir­a­cies against the process of restor­ing peace in the city.

A spokesman for Rangers said in a state­ment is­sued here that the mis­cre­ants, dis­turbed by pre­vail­ing peace in the Sindh cap­i­tal, were busy hatch­ing con­spir­a­cies against the op­er­a­tion in guise of po­lit­i­cal par­ties.

"These anti-Pak­istan el­e­ments are try­ing to spread chaos among masses through dif­fer­ent per­son­al­i­ties," he said. The spokesman urged the masses and the media to ver­ify ru­mours against law en­force­ment agen­cies with Rangers. The cit­i­zens of Karachi and Sindh have foiled such con­spir­a­cies in the past, said the spokesman, ex­press­ing his con­fi­dence in the masses for con­tin­u­ing do­ing the same in the fu­ture also. The paramil­i­tary force also urged the masses to re­port such at­tempts at help-line 1101.
