F.P. Report

RAWALPINDI: Chief of Army Staff General Asim Munir is currently visiting the United Kingdom, not the United States as rumoured on social media.

There were rumours and speculations on social media regarding the army chief’s visit to the United States.

However, Inter Services Public Relations Director General Major General Ahmed Sharif Chaudhry took to Twitter to dispel these speculations and rumours and said the COAS was visiting the UK in connection with the 5th Pakistan-UK Stabilisation Conference.

“There have been baseless speculations on social media that COAS is visiting USA. It is categorically stated that COAS is on an official visit to UK from 5th to 10th February in connection with 5th Pakistan-UK Stabilisation Conference, which is a bi-annual event for military to military cooperation between the two countries. Senior Pakistan military leadership has been participating in the event since 2016,” he wrote.
