Major General Asim Bajwa has been appointed the new director general of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) and spokesman for the Pakistan Army.

A military official confirmed that Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani on Friday named Bajwa as the replacement for incumbent Director General of ISPR Maj Gen Athar Abbas, who retires in June.

Maj Gen Bajwa is currently posted in Dera Ismail Khan as General Officer Commanding (GOC) and has supervised key military operations against militants in the South Waziristan tribal region.

Bajwa also served former military ruler General Pervez Musharraf as deputy military secretary and commanded the important 111 Brigade. He will take charge as the new DG ISPR after Maj Gen Abbas retires in June this year.
