General Qamar Bajwa takes charge as Pak Army Chief

ANI  |  Islamabad [Pakistan] 

General Qamar Javed Bajwa today took charge as Pakistan's 16th Chief of Army Staff.

Outgoing military chief General Raheel Sharif, who passed the baton of command to General Bajwa, in his final speech emphasized that all institutions must work together against external as well as internal threats for the country's progress.

"For this, we will need to follow the National Action Plan in letter and spirit," the Dawn quoted him as saying while addressing the ceremony after reviewing the guard of honour.

General Sharif also lauded the federal and political leadership for their continued support to him.

Minister for Defence Khawaja Asif and Minister of State for Information Marriyum Aurangzeb and Speaker National Assembly Ayaz Sadiq were among those present in the ceremony held in the Army Hockey Stadium, close to the General Headquarters (GHQ).

General Bajwa is the fourth officer from the infantry's Baloch Regiment to become the Army Chief.
