WASHINGTON: US Secretary of Defence Lloyd J. Austin will host an enhanced honour cordon on Tuesday for Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa when he arrives at the Pentagon for an official meeting.

The pooled press will be given access to the event, although there will be no briefing.

An enhanced honour cordon is reserved for the US president, vice president, statutory appointees, general or flag officers of the US military, foreign dignitaries occupying positions comparable to these US officials, and for occasions in which such ceremonies promote international goodwill.

Indian Defence Minister Rajnath Singh also received an enhanced honour cordon when he visited the Pentagon in April this year for bilateral talks with his American counterpart.

The army chief is currently in Washington for a series of meetings with senior US officials. While the Pakistan embassy has not released the chief’s itinerary, other sources said Gen Bajwa was expected to meet National Intelligence Director Avril D. Haines, and CIA Director William J. Burns, besides the defence secretary.

Recent media reports suggested that he may also have a one-on-one meeting with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, but US sources say that it seems unlikely.

Media reports have suggested that DG ISI, Chief of the General Staff and DG Military Operations are also accompanying the army chief, who reached New York on Friday. The COAS met the head of the UN peacekeeping forces in New York before leaving for Washington.

Gen Bajwa is expected to leave for home on Wednesday after an extensive session with US scholars and think-tank experts at the Pakistan embassy. Earlier reports suggested that he may also visit the headquarters of the US Central Command, but it will be difficult to do so if he leaves on Wednesday.


I am not making this up. This is how much of a trojan horse Bajwa is.

Joke of century:

Army chief Bajwa says "Army will stay out of politics" at a speech today in Washington DC.
After the speech according to the ISPR, Gen Bajwa called on retired General Lloyd James Austin III, Secretary of Defence (political appointee) ; Jacob Jeremiah Sullivan, National Security Adviser (a member of the executive branch); and Wendy Ruth Sherman, Deputy Secretary of State (the person in large measure responsible for South Asian policy). All civilians not and not active serving military.

I think PK Army needs a lesson in American Government.

This needs a positive reaction. Not to someone who keeps on defending ******* generals and their lackeys on PDF.

always remember one from third world who is awarded in the west particularly in US is for two reasons.

either he deserves it or he is being made for, for their own benefits. in the news there is another man mentioned, choose each of them wisely.

so this shows what the US believes is the stature of the Army chief. a non-elected official is equivalent to a defense minister or a general/flag officer of the US Military.
