British High Commissioner Dr Christian Turner called on Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa in Rawalpindi today (Thursday) to discuss overall regional security situation and matters of mutual interests.
The British High Commissioner appreciated Pakistan’s effort for the Afghan peace process and regional stability.
In its statement, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said the two discussed “matters of mutual interest and the overall regional security situation”.
“The visiting dignitary appreciated Pakistan Army’s role in the Afghan peace process and maintaining peace and stability in the region,” the ISPR added.
Earlier, Christian Turner shared a video wherein he stated that 18 months ago, there was no British carrier flying to Pakistan but “now we have over 20 direct flights a week”.
“This is a sign of real confidence in Pakistan,” Dr Turner had said. “Our 1.6 billion British-Pakistanis are the heart of our dosti [friendship]. They will now have more options to visit loved ones, build ties, and boost trade.”
