ISLAMABAD: The chief of the Inter Services Intelligence (ISI), Lt Gen Faiz Hamid, met Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday to discuss “national security issues”.
“Director General ISI Lt Gen Faiz Hamid called on Prime Minister Imran Khan today,” the Prime Minister Office said in a brief statement issued after the meeting.
“Matters pertaining to national security were discussed during the meeting,” it said.
The ISI chief reports to the prime minister and as such they frequently interact. However, only meetings of high significance are made public by the PMO’s media section.
The meeting was held on the heels of another session between PM Khan, Chief of the Army Staff Gen Qamar Bajwa and Gen Hamid on Monday on the sidelines of a meeting of National Coordination Committee on Covid-19, which was reported by multiple media outlets.
Although it’s not clear if this issue was discussed, a major concern has been the growing rift between the federal and Sindh governments over the Covid-19 containment strategies and relief work, which is turning acrimonious.
According to one of the federal ministers, PM Khan was to visit interior of Sindh on Thursday (today). However, the trip was postponed late on Wednesday.
