Islamabad, May 23: Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Tuesday warned of giving a befitting response to any hostile action on the borders, notwithstanding the country's desire for enduring peace with neighbours.

"He (Bajwa) said that notwithstanding our desire for enduring peace with our neighbours, any hostile action anywhere along our frontiers shall be responded most befittingly," it said.
Improving situation in Balochistan was discussed in the conference where officers were also briefed on the geo- strategic environment, progress of military operation Radd- ul-Fasaad against militants, operational preparedness against conventional threat and matters concerning national security.
