Islamabad: Pakistan might replace its top envoy to India, Abdul Basit, who has completed his three-year tenure in New Delhi.
Basit, the Pakistan high commissioner to India, was appointed in March, 2014 after he suffered a major disappointment when he was sure of being appointed Pakistan’s foreign secretary but last-minute wheeling and dealing resulted in the appointment of Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry.
Already, name of senior diplomat Sohail Mahmood is being discussed as possible replacement of Basit. He is not the only one as other names are also being named including one of former spokesperson Tasnim Aslam, the sources said. (Agencies)
