Federal Defence Minister Khawaja Asif said that Sharif was given permission to head the military alliance after due process. Earlier, he had been claiming that Raheel Sharif had not formally sought the NOC, so far. So, it may be said an overnight written request and overnight approval.
Asif said the former top commander was given the NOC after approval from the Pakistan Army's General Headquarters (GHQ) in Rawalpindi.
A news channel has reported that Sharif left Lahore for Riyadh earlier today on a special aircraft which had arrived in Lahore to receive him. Sharif was accompanied by his wife and mother on the flight.
