Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Asim Munir has reached the United Kingdom on Britain’s Ministry of Defence invitation to discuss security-related strategic issues.
According to credible Military sources, General Munir will be visiting the UK officially for five days starting from Monday. Senior Military officials will accompany him during the visit.
COAS landed in the UK late on Saturday night. The COAS visit to the UK is seen as highly important in view of the rising issue of Taliban militancy and the security situation in the South Asian region. This is General Asim Munir’s first visit to the UK after taking charge as Army chief at the end of November last year.
The Army chief will address the 5th joint UK-Pakistan stabilisation conference at Wilton Park between the 5th to 8th of February.
Wilton Park is an executive agency created by the UK Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office to foster open dialogue between governments.
Co-hosted by UK Army Chief General Sir Patrick Sanders, the conference is themed “Regional Stability in South Asia: the return of geopolitics and other challenges.”
The conference will focus on the Russia-Ukraine war and its impact on the EU, and the UK, and its consideration for Pakistan.
