Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Monday visited the Headquarters of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) amidst the ongoing tiff with the civilian government over the appointment of the spy chief.
The powerful Army on October 6 had announced through a statement that in a high-level reshuffle in the military, ISI Director General Lt Gen Faiz Hamid was replaced by Lt Gen Nadeem Ahmed Anjum. However, the office of Prime Minister Imran Khan refused to issue a notification of the appointment of the new ISI chief.
Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry for the first time on October 12 acknowledged the presence of differences over the key appointment. The matter has not been settled until now despite statements by ministers that it has been resolved and the appointment of the new ISI chief would be made soon.
