RAWALPINDI: The director general of the Pakistan Army’s media wing will address a press conference at 3pm today (Friday).
The press conference by Major General Asif Ghafoor, the Pakistan Army spokesperson and director general for the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), comes at a time when Pakistan and neighbouring India face heightened tensions after an attack in Pulwama in the Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK).
Consequent to the Pulwama attack, New Delhi blamed Islamabad for the incident, which the Pakistani leadership strongly denied.
Earlier today, Prime Minister Imran Khan directed the Pakistan Army to respond “decisively and comprehensively” to any aggression or misadventure by India.
The premier issued the directives during a meeting of the National Security Council (NSC), which discussed the geo-strategic environment in the region as well as the situation arising after the Pulwama incident.
Prior to the NSC meeting, Khan also held a meeting with Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa. Sources said the two figures discussed the country and region’s security situation.
Some 44 Indian paramilitary personnel were killed when an explosives-packed van rammed into a convoy transporting 2,500 security forces in the district, in the deadliest attack in the valley in 30 years.
