This is considered the most significant statement made by Gen Kiyani since taking over the reins of the Army about the country's political situation and army's relationship with the future government. Addressing a meeting of corps commanders, he reaffirmed that the Army would fully support the democratic process in the country by playing its constitutional role, and expressed hope the Army would not be dragged into any more controversies. He also expressed hope that a harmonious relationship would be established between the pillars of state, as enshrined in the Constitution. Kayani said the Army would stay out of the political process and reaffirmed the Army's commitment to the solidarity and integrity of Pakistan. This could only be achieved with the full support of the people of Pakistan, he added.
