Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) headquarters on Monday, where he was received by ISI Director General Lieutenant General Faiz Hameed, according to a statement from the military’s media wing ISPR.

The COAS was briefed on “internal security and the ongoing situation in Afghanistan”, the statement added.

General Bajwa expressed his satisfaction over the preparedness of the organisation, it added.

The Army chief’s visit to the ISI headquarters comes amidst a reported standoff between the military and the government over the appointment of the new spymaster. The army had announced on October 6 that the incumbent ISI chief, Lt Gen Hameed, had been made the Peshawar corps commander, while Lt Gen Nadeem Ahmed Anjum was appointed in his place.

GUJRANWALA: Earlier in the day, a change of command ceremony was held at the Gujranwala Cantt in which Lt Gen Syed Asim Munir handed over command of Gujranwala Corps to Lt Gen Muhammad Aamer.

According to the ISPR, he was posted as the Quartermaster General (QMG) earlier this month.

Lt Gen Aamer’s posting as the Gujranwala corps commander was among six appointments announced by the military in a reshuffle on October 6 – including the name for a new ISI DG.
