The presser was earlier scheduled to be held at 3pm today to underline the topics of discussion in the latest core commander conference.

DG ISPR will, in the next press conference, address important issues pertaining to internal and external security of Pakistan.

The meeting reviewed geostrategic and national security environment of the country, and the entire regional security matters.
On Monday, Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor termed a report published by Dawn newspaper as “factually incorrect”.

“News published by Dawn today titled “Pak-Iran Forces jointly conduct border patrolling” is factually incorrect,” a tweet by the DG ISPR read.

“There is no joint patrolling anywhere on Pakistani Borders. Patrolling/operations if required are always on respective sides by respective forces through coordination.”
