ISLAMABAD: In the first meeting between Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Director General Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Lieutenant General Naveed Mukhtar, the two high-ups discussed overall security situation in the country.
According to a PM House statement, this is the first meeting of DG ISI after assuming charge. The premier also felicitated him on assuming the charge of the ISI.
“During the meeting, the DG ISI and the prime minister discussed policy guidelines and internal security,” said the statement.
Mukhtar replaced Lt Gen Rizwan Akhtar as head of ISI earlier in December. The position of the ISI’s director general fell vacant after Lt Gen Rizwan Akhtar was transferred to National Defence University Islamabad as its president.
