The government has selected Dr. Asad Majeed to take on the role of foreign secretary. He is the current Ambassador of Pakistan to Belgium.
A notification has been issued in this respect.
Asad Majeed has served as Pakistan’s ambassador to the EU before. In addition to his diplomatic duties, he represented Pakistan as its envoy to the United States.
It’s worth noting that the Foreign Secretary position was vacant for a full two months.
Meanwhile, Ghulam Mehmood Dogar, CCPO of Lahore, was restored by Supreme Court (SC) of Pakistan.
The federal government suspended Ghulam Mehmood Dogar a few days ago when the Governor House was attacked. Dogar challenged the suspension all the way to the Supreme Court.
