Defence Minister Khawaja Asif has said that he would brief the Senate regarding details of former army chief Raheel Sharif’s appointment as head of the 41-nation Islamic Military Alliance to Fight Terrorism after a meeting of the member nations.
“I will keep my word and give the Senate the details about the appointment, but after the grand meeting of all the countries that are participating in IMAFT, which is expected in May.”
“I was supposed to brief the Senate about the matter today, but the session was postponed,” said the defence minister while talking to media. “The NOC was given after the General Headquarters gave the go ahead and Gen Raheel has left the country,” added Asif.
Reiterating a point he has made a number of times before, Asif reassured the nation that Pakistan will not violate any previous pacts and will not be a party to any conflicts between two Muslim nations.
