RAWALPINDI: Inter-Services Public Relations  (ISPR) said Thursday that Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited the Inter-Services Intelligence Headquarters.

According to the military's media wing, the army chief was given a comprehensive briefing on the regional and national security situation.

On the occasion, the army chief appreciated ISI's tireless efforts for national security and expressed his satisfaction over professional preparedness.

The director-general of the Inter-Services Intelligence (DG ISI) Gen Faiz Hamid received the army chief, the statement read.

Nearly a month ago, Gen Bajwa had called on Prime Minister Imran Khan to discuss the country's internal and external security situation in a meeting also attended by DG ISI Gen Hamid.

According to the prime minister's office, matters pertaining to the external security situation comprised India's aggression both in occupied Kashmir and across the Line of Control (LoC) through ceasefire violations (CFVs) — which PM Imran Khan had earlier said exceeded 3,000 in 2020 alone.

"Concern was expressed over continuous human rights violations in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir," the statement from the PM's Office read.

"Ceasefire violations and frequent provocative measures from Indian forces along Line of Control came under discussion," it added.
