Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Monday called on Premier Imran Khan in Islamabad, a statement issued by Prime Minister Office (PMO) said.

Director General Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Lieutenant General Faiz Hamid was also present during the meeting, it added.

Matters pertaining to internal and external security were discussed during the meeting, it further stated. No further details were provided by the Prime Minister Office.

 

This is the third high-level huddle at the PM Office between the trio within a month as meetings also took place on January 11 and 25.

Observers believe that the meeting, which took place on January 25, might be linked with the current Afghan situation particularly after the Biden administration announced to review the peace deal with the Afghan Taliban.

The meeting was believed to have taken place to finalise Pakistan’s strategy as the Biden administration will soon formally contact Islamabad to discuss the peace efforts in Afghanistan.
