President Dr. Arif Alvi on Thursday conferred Nishan-e-Imtiaz (Military) upon Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Syed Asim Munir and Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC) Sahir Shamshad Mirza.
In a unique investiture ceremony held at the Aiwan-e-Sadar, the awards were given to the new COAS and CJCSC.
Federal ministers, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani, Speaker of the National Assembly Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, and others were present at the ceremony.
Last month, Gen Munir assumed command as the new COAS after Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa hung up his boots, while Gen Sahir Shamshad Mirza replaced Gen (retd) Nadeem Raza.
The generals took charge of their new posts after Prime Minister Shehbaz promoted them as generals and named them for the new offices.
