(Pakistan) Il nuovo capo dell’esercito deve affrontare un compito arduo per garantire la stabilità (fonte: ORF)

Gen. Syed Asim Munir has assumed the charge as Pakistan’s 17th Army Chief; someone with a rare professional experience of heading the country’s two powerful intelligence agencies—Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Military Intelligence. He replaced Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa, who retired on 29 November after a six-year-long stint as the country’s army chief. Gen. Munir has taken over the army’s reins at a time when the civil-military relations in Pakistan are in complete disarray. His predecessor has left behind an unprecedented political and economic mess for him to clean. On the security front, he was welcomed by the armed group Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP)’s unanimous declaration of the end of the ‘indefinite’ ceasefire on 28 November and calls for attacks across Pakistan. Gen. Munir has his task cut out to address these multifarious challenges.
