RAWALPINDI: Director-General of the Inter-Services Public Relations Maj Gen Babar Iftikhar on Monday addressed the nation on Pakistan Resolution Day, March 23, and talked about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic in the country.
The Pakistan Army spokesperson said the aim of today’s briefing was to apprise the country’s citizens of the military’s efforts in the war against COVID-19, which has so far infected 882 people and left at least six people dead.
“First of all, I wish all citizens and Pakistanis living anywhere abroad on the Pakistan Day,” Maj Gen Iftikhar said. “80 years ago, our ancestors set up their goal and, in a united manner, made the impossible possible.
“Today is the day to honour and remember all those great people, for an independent nation and the two-nation theory, the truth of which still dawns on everyone today,” he added.
“Today, it’s March 23 again. And today, our ancestors’ heirs face a new challenge, an evil that has taken over the entire world.
