The remarks were made during Corps Commanders' Conference presided by General Qamar Javed Bajwa, Chief of Army Staff (COAS) at GHQ on Tuesday, said DG ISPR.

COAS Bajwa in today’s statement said: "Pakistan is one of the lead participations with significant contributions towards peace and stability efforts in the region. We shall continue to play our responsible and positive role towards this end without compromising national security and defence of the motherland at whatever cost", COAS.

“Forum reviewed evolving security situation in the Middle East with reference to US-Iran stand off and its implications on regional peace and stability,” it added.
