ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan met with Chief of the Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Monday to discuss the ongoing security situation in the region.
The COAS and PM Imran also exchanged views on the prevalent situation at the Line of Control (LoC) and the Middle East crisis.
After Iran and US ties got further strained following the death of Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani, PM Imran had directed General Bajwa "to contact relevant military leaders to convey a clear message: Pakistan is ready to play it's role for peace but it can never again be part of any war."
PM Imran earlier today welcomed a meeting of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) held in New York to discuss the humanitarian crisis and communications lock down imposed on occupied Kashmir by India.
The prime minister in his message on Twitter reiterated that the issue of occupied Kashmir was an internationally recognised dispute that remains on the agenda of the international body.
"Pakistan welcomes UN Security Council discussing the situation in Jammu and Kashmir again. An internationally recognized dispute, Jammu and Kashmir remains on the Security Council’s agenda and its consideration by the Council reflects a recognition of the seriousness of the prevailing situation," PM Imran wrote on Twitter.
