Islamabad: As the country remembers its martyrs on Defence Day, Prime Minister Imran Khan and President Arif Alvi reiterated the nations’ resolve to thwart any kind of misadventure by the enemy and its readiness to respond befittingly.
President Alvi underscored that the Pakistan armed forces “were imbued with the spirit of patriotism and sacrifice and were capable of defeating any internal and external adventurism”.
“September 6 dawns every year with the remembrance of national spirit and for renewal of our resolve to lay down our lives for our beloved motherland. Fifty-four years ago, our valiant armed forces, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the nation, immortalized this day as a symbol of courage, bravery, sacrifice, and national integrity by thwarting the evil designs of the enemy,” he wrote.
“The world has already witnessed their capabilities in February this year, when they effectively and swiftly responded to Indian intrusion and made it clear to the world that their hearts are still charged with September Spirit and they will go to any extent to safeguard the freedom, integrity, and sovereignty of the motherland,” he observed.
