Former Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Retired General Raheel Sharif has set three critical conditions in front of Saudi led 39-nations Islamic Military Alliance, before proceeding with the command. This has been revealed through the claims made by retired military officer Lt-Gen. Amjad Shoaib.
In conversation with a local TV channel, Gen. (R) Amjad Shoaib stated that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has already given a complete approval to appoint Gen. (R) Raheel Sharif as the head of the military alliance, upon the request of Saudi authorities.
According to the details, PM when asked about the authorization by Saudi Government stated that Raheel Sharif heading the military alliance will be an honour for the country.
Gen. (R) Amjad Shoaib also disclosed that the former COAS has put forward three conditions before assuming the prestigious role. His demands are:
- The General wouldn’t work under anyone’s orders and wouldn’t take any superior’s commands.
- Iran should be included in the military alliance so the organization doesn’t give the impression of being sectarian in nature.
- Incoming Chief should be provided with the authority to direct peace among Muslim countries and act as a mediator if any situation arises.
