According to Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid briefed PM Imran over the evolving situation in Afghanistan and the overall law and order situation in the country.
PM Imran lauded the Ministry for Interior’s role in evacuating thousands of Afghanistan and foreign nationals from Kabul after the Taliban took over the country on August 15.
The federal minister also provided briefings to the prime minister on Islamabad’s security situation, Rescue 1122 services, and the facilitation cell, the statement said.
Both the leaders also exchanged views on the country’s border management, the statement said, three days after Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa had expressed satisfaction over the efficacy of the comprehensive border management regime.
Speaking to the media, United States Senator Chris Van Hollen had earlier in the day said that Pakistan’s role in the current Afghanistan situation is very important.
