At the invitation of the UK’s Ministry of Defence, General Asim Munir, the Chief of the Army Staff (COAS), is visiting the country for a five-day official visit. Gen. Munir is making his first trip to the UK since he was appointed commander of the army.
Due to the increasing concern about Taliban militancy and the current state of affairs in South Asia, the visit is considered of paramount importance. As part of his visit, which began on Monday, General Munir will be joined by senior military commanders.
It is scheduled that the COAS will speak at the 5th Joint UK-Pakistan Stabilization Conference, which will be hosted by UK Army Chief General Sir Patrick Sanders between February 5-8 at Wilton Park. The conference, which is centered around the theme “Regional Stability in South Asia: the return of geopolitics and other challenges,” will focus on the effects of the Ukraine war on the European Union, the UK, and its ramifications for Pakistan.
As part of his visit to the United Kingdom, Gen. Munir will also address senior military commanders and the chief of the British army at the British military headquarters. Towards the end of his visit, he will also deliver a lecture at a security think-tank.
