As the nation commemorates 55th Defence & Martyrs Day, Prime Minister Imran Khan in his message to the nation said that Pakistan’s desire for peace must not be misconstrued as its weakness, adding that the country’s armed forces were “fully capable” of defending the country.

In his message, that was shared in a series of tweets on the microblogging platform, the premier honoured the fallen heroes of the war, saying that 55 years ago, the nation and the men in uniform “proved that it is not the size that matters, but it is the courage and devotion that matters the most”.

“6 September is a day in Pakistan’s glorious history that is commemorated as a symbol of courage, strong will, and unmatched spirit of sacrifice by our gallant armed forces”, PM said.

“The resilient nation and the battle-hardened armed forces of Pakistan have time and again proved that they are fully capable of defending the country and are fully prepared to meet any kind of eventuality”.
