Islamabad: Disagreements between Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan and the military over the appointment of a new head of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) have reportedly ended. Pakistan’s Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry has said that the ISI chief will be announced on Saturday.
During the clashes, Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited the ISI headquarters on Monday. According to media reports, the visit was to discuss the country’s internal security and the situation in Afghanistan.
The army announced on October 6 that it had appointed Lieutenant General Hamid, the current ISI chief, as commander of the Peshawar Corps, and was replaced by Lieutenant General Nadeem Ahmed Anju as head of the Pakistani spy agency. But the Prime Minister’s Office was not ready to issue a notification in this regard. This was the reason for the dispute between Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan and his army. Just before Imran Khan prepares to visit the Gulf country, the Prime Minister’s Office will issue an official statement spying on Nadeem Ahmed Anju.
