Lt General Zubair Mahmood Hayat, one of the leading contenders to become the next chief of the Pakistan Army, has held talks with a senior Chinese military official in Beijing, becoming the first top Pak military official to visit China after the Uri attack.
Lt General Hayat, chief of general staff of the Pakistan Army, held talks with Gen Fang Fenghui, member of China’s Central Military Commission and chief of the Joint Staff Department, state-run China Military Online reported. Although the report did not mention the purpose of the visit, it comes ahead of the scheduled retirement of General Raheel Sharif in November.
Gen Hayat’s trip is also the first time that a senior Pak Army official is visiting China since the attack on an Indian Army base in Uri in September by Pakistan-backed militants that killed 19 soldiers.
