"An exhaustive review of professional matters, internal and external security situation including the ongoing and future operations against terrorism was carried out," according to military statement.

Defence sources said that Director General Military Operations (DGMO) Maj Gen Aamer Riaz briefed the military commanders about his recently-held talks on security matters with Afghan authorities in Kabul.

Riaz was part of the delegation which national security advisor Sartaj Aziz led to Kabul where he attended a regional conference and then met Afghan leaders last week.

The commanders also reviewed the security situation along the Line of Control (LoC) and the Working Boundary where recent clashes have claimed civilian lives.

The 'Zarb-e-Azb' military offensive in the tribal region and paramilitary Rangers' operation in Karachi to wipe out militants from the region were also reviewed during the conference.
