MOAZZAM Ahmed Khan, a prominent diplomat, has been appointed as the new Pakistan Ambassador to the UAE. He was supposed to take charge on Aug.13 but according to sources the final date will be announced soon.
“The new ambassador to the UAE is still fulfilling his official duties in Holland and has not handed over his duties to resume in Abu Dhabi yet,” an official told The Gulf Today on Monday.
The former ambassador, Asif Ali Durrani, who completed his 3-year tenure has returned to Pakistan last month following which the government announced the new ambassador.
It is also mentioned that the other key post in the Pakistan mission, Consul General in Dubai, was also vacant for over two months after Javed Jalil Khattak returned to Pakistan.
However, the government of Pakistan has appointed the new Consul General. Brigadier Retired Javed will be the new Consul General and resume his duties later this month. Currently, Summar Javed, a senior officer, has been serving as acting Consul General.
Two close relatives of Asif Ali Durrani have died in the Quetta bomb blast, sources in the Dubai Consulate confirmed. The former ambassador hails from Balochistan and resides in Quetta where he joined the civil service and also served the government.
