ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan met Chief of the Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Thursday to discuss matters pertaining to national and regional security.

The ongoing situation at the line of Control (LoC) and the Middle East crisis were also  part of the discussion.

In wake of escalation between the United States and Iran,  PM Imran had asked General Qamar Javed Bajwa "to contact relevant military leaders to convey a clear message: Pakistan is ready to play it's role for peace but it can never again be part of any war."
