Minister for Energy Khurram Dastgir on Saturday said that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif will take the decision on the appointment of the chief of army staff in London after holding consultations with party supremo Nawaz Sharif.

Addressing a press conference in Gujranwala, the energy minister, without taking PTI Chairman Imran Khan’s name, said that no matter how many times Khan meets with the army chief, the final decision will be taken by the prime minister.

On the other hand, Minister for Defence Khawaja Asif said that no process has been started to extend the army chief’s tenure nor there has been any suggestion in this regard.

His comments came while speaking during a press conference in Islamabad.
