PM Imran, General Hayat discuss matters related to armed forces


Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC) General Zubair Mahmood Hayat called on Prime Minister Imran Khan at the PM Office on Thursday, said a statement issued by the military’s media wing.

Professional matters pertaining to the country’s armed forces were discussed during the meeting, according to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).


The meeting comes at a time when the prime minister is set to make his first major appointment in the army.

PM Khan will soon appoint a new head of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) after the incumbent chief of the country’s premier spy agency, Lt-Gen Naveed Mukhtar is set to retire this month.

Following his retirement, the prime minister would appoint a new DG ISI. Although there is no official word yet, the incoming ISI chief is likely to be picked from the recently-promoted major generals to the rank of lieutenant generals.
