RAWALPINDI: The director-general of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Major General Babar Iftikhar, on Monday dismissed experiences that the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief was being changed, saying “don’t speculate further”.

In a press convention right here earlier as we speak, a reporter whereas talking to Maj Gen Iftikhar talked about that quite a few issues, together with the “DG ISI’s appointment, Gen Asif, and talk about Gen Faiz”, had been being mentioned on social media.

“Is there any expected move in the near future? Or are these reports not based on truth,” the reporter requested.

The Pakistan Army spokesperson underscored that there needs to be no hypothesis about this stuff. “An officer completes their term after being appointed at a senior level in the Army,” he stated.

“These are baseless speculations and I request you not to think about these things nor should there be any speculation about these things,” he added. “Appointments in the Army, as an institution, and especially on a senior level are not this short-lived and everyone completes their tenure.

“Normally, appointments within the Army as head of an establishment are for 2 years. There’s no reality in these experiences in anyway and I want to request to not speculate additional on this factor. Thank you,” Maj Gen Iftikhar underlined.
