PM, DG ISI discuss overall security situation in country

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.
