The United States immediately welcomed the move, and encouraged the two to "keep building on this progress." Bajwa said Pakistan had "hope" in the form of President Joe Biden's new administration, which he said could help facilitate peace in the region.
The legislation came after the supreme court last year challenged Prime Minister Imran Khan's decision to extend the appointment of army chief General Qamer Javed Bajwa, 59, by a further three years.
The eagerly awaited detailed judgment of the Supreme Court on extension/reappointment of Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa will be released on Monday.
The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) announced on Thursday to unconditionally support the extension of Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa as the chief of the army staff for three years.
Fake news circulating through Twitter that Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa was in London took social media by storm, leading to intense speculation and discussion about the ongoing political situation and the future politics of Pakistan.
PM said the army knew everything about him and the others who had plundered money. “The Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Intelligence Bureau (IB) know whatever I do and with whom I talk on telephone.”
PPP Chairman said that he can’t tolerate the issue the way it happened for it has crossed several redlines.
“I praise Gen Bajwa today. To attack an army chief in this manner, a reaction comes from the army,” Imran said during an interview to a TV channel when asked whether there was any “anger” within the military over Sharif’s aggressive speeches.
His Highness Sheikh Mohamed and General Bajwa discussed, during the meeting, relations of friendship, cooperation and joint coordination between the two countries in defence and military affairs and ways to develop them to serve their mutual interests.
