Imran Khan called President with ISI Chief


ISLAMABAD: President Dr Arif Alvi, Prime Minister Imran and Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Lt Gen Faiz Hameed met on Monday and discussed various domestic and international issues, including the Covid-19 pandemic, precautionary arrangements for the forthcoming holy month of Ramazan and Indian aggression against innocent people of occupied Kashmir.

According to an official press release, Prime Minister Khan called on President Alvi at the Presidency.

“They exchanged views on domestic and international matters,” it added.

The meeting also discussed the country’s ongoing fight against the coronavirus pandemic and the president appreciated the steps taken by the government to control the spread of the Covid-19 disease in the country.

The president also lauded the initiative of the prime minister regarding the debt moratorium for developing countries.

He said the government should keep on ensuring maximum relief to the masses, especially the poorest section of society through Ehsaas programme, Utility Stores, Panahgahs, Langar Khanas and other necessary means during the crisis.

Later, ISI Director General Lt Gen Faiz Hameed also joined the meeting. The meeting strongly condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violation by Indian forces from across the Line of Control (LoC) and the use of coronavirus pandemic as an excuse to trample human rights and further curb civil liberties in India-occupied Jammu and Kashmir. It was also highlighted in the meeting that the people of held Kashmir were being denied basic health facilities even during the coronavirus pandemic.

Prime Minister Khan thanked President Alvi for his efforts to evolve consensus among Ulema about prayers and Taraweeh in mosques during the holy month of Ramazan.

The meeting also discussed recently-agreed Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) with ulema and its implementation.
