Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Asim Munir has arrived in the United Kingdom on a highly important visit on Britain’s Ministry of Defence invitation to discuss security-related strategic issues. General Asim Munir will be visiting the UK officially for five days starting from today (Monday). The senior military commanders will accompany him during the visit. They landed in the UK late on Saturday night. The visit is seen as highly important in view of the rising issue of Taliban militancy and the situation in the South Asian region. This is General Asim Munir’s first visit to the UK after taking over as Pakistan’s powerful army chief at the end of November last year. The army chief will address the 5th joint UK-Pakistan stabilisation conference at Wilton Park between February 5-8. Co-hosted by UK Army Chief General Sir Patrick Sanders, the conference is themed “Regional Stability in South Asia: the return of geopolitics and other challenges.” The conference will focus on the Ukraine war’s impact on the EU, UK, and its consideration for Pakistan. The COAS will visit the headquarters of the British military and address senior military commanders.
