Corps Commanders’ Conference discusses input from NSC meeting


Rawalpindi, Jan. 2 (TNS): Corps Commanders’ Conference was held at General Headquarters in Rawalpindi on Tuesday, ISPR said in a brief statement.

Evolving geo-strategic environment and internal security situation was reviewed during the conference.

The forum also discussed input from National Security Committee meeting.

Earlier, a high level meeting of National Security Committee (NSC) to discuss US President Donald Trump’s latest statement alleging Pakistan of ‘lies and deceit’ was held in Islamabad on Tuesday.

Senior civil-military leaders, including Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif, and services chiefs were present in the huddle.

In a 50 word tweet, the US President stated: “The US has foolishly given Pakistan more than $33 billion in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies and deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools. They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!”
