Islamabad: Pakistan's armed forces must remain at a high state of preparedness at all times because of the multidimensional security threats faced by the country, Army Chief Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani said on Thursday.

Kayani made the remarks while interacting with troops during a visit to the Sonmiani Range in Balochistan province.

The army chief also witnessed the firing of anti-aircraft guns and surface-to-air missiles.

He emphasised the need for "total focus on professional competence and operational preparedness," an official statement said.

Kayani said the army is making "all out efforts to equip itself with the best available weapons and equipment."
