Raheel Sharif yet to seek NOC to lead 39-country alliance: Asif

Inquiring if the government's permission was sought before the former army chief "accepted" the role, Rabbani asked Asif as to who confirmed his appointment and what the rules were for a retired military officer to take up such a position. He pointed out that Raheel Sharif has not informed any institution about being offered a job in Saudi Arab. He was commenting on the reports about Gen. Raheel's careers in the Saudi-led military alliance to fight the terrorism.

Senate chairman Raza Rabbani responded to this with an inquiry. Last Friday, defence minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif confirmed that Gen Raheel had been made the head of Riyadh-based military coalition, a brainchild of young Saudi defence minister Muhammad Bin Salman, formed to combat terrorism.

Federal Defence Minister Khawaja Asif said on Wednesday that former Chief of Army Staff (COAS), General Raheel Sharif, has not approached the government for the NOC (no-objection certificate) to head 39-nation Islamic military alliance, Samaa reported.

On the other hand, Advisor to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz has stated that former Army Chief General Raheel Sharif was not given any job offer overseas.

Sources said that the defence minister had contacted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in this regard and took him into confidence.

The Advisor to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz also informed the House that no formal request had so far been received for NOC from General (retd) Raheel Sharif.

He was, however, unaware of the exact details. This news story is related to Latest/178374-Gen-Raheel-not-offered-any-job-abroad-Sartaj-Aziz/ - breaking news, latest news, pakistan ne.
