While acknowledging the sacrifices of armed forces, both vowed to remember the families of martyrs in their prayers.
They said that the nation is fully alive to any kind of misadventure by the enemy and ready to give fullest possible response.
In his message, President emphatically stated that in addition to being fully modernized, Pakistan’s Armed Forces were imbued with the spirit of patriotism and sacrifice and were capable of defeating any internal and external adventurism.
