Earlier today, ex-army chief Raheel Sharif met with Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Since his retirement in 2016, Sharif has become the commander-in-chief of the Saudi based Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition (IMCTC), which was the brain child of the Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, who is due to arrive later this week for a series of investment talks.
In a meeting at the Foreign Office, Sharif discussed regional stability with FM Qureshi. The FM then praised the appropriate steps taken by the coalition to help bring regional peace. Sharif also met with Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani in the Parliament House before meeting PM Imran Khan.
During the meeting both Sharif and PM Khan talked about matters of mutual interest as well as national and international security, and counter terrorism measures taken by the coalition.
On Monday, 11th February, the ex-army chief also called upon COAS General Qamar Javed Bajwa at the General Headquarters (GHQ) for talks regarding regional stability and peace, said Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
The arrival of the ex-army chief comes just a few days prior to the arrival of the Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.
