RAWALPINDI: The British Commissioner Dr Christian Turner has called on Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Qamar Javed Bajwa in General Headquarters (GHQ) today (Thursday).
According to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), matters of mutual interest, and the overall regional security situation were discussed during the meeting. “The visiting dignitary appreciated Pakistan Army’s role in the Afghan peace process and maintaining peace and stability in the region,” the ISPR added.
Dr Turner was last in the news when Virgin Atlantic’s first flight to Pakistan landed at the Islamabad International Airport (IIAP) on Friday, marking the airline’s commencement of operations in the South Asian nation.
The high commissioner shared a video on Twitter 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. Our 1.6 billion British-Pakistanis are the heart of our friendship. They will now have more options to visit loved ones, build ties, and boost trade,” he added.
