General Sahir Shamshad Mirza, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC), will travel to Australia on July 24 for Defence and Security Talks and 1.5 Track Security Dialogue, according to the military.
The CJCSC met with high-ranking civilian and military authorities during the tour, including General Angus J. Campbell, Chief of Defence Forces Australia, according to an Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) release.
Both sides agreed to expand military-to-military cooperation during the sessions.
The CJCSC also visited the Royal Military College and spoke to participants at the Australian Defence College, according to the release.
General Campbell met with then-Army Chief General (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa in February last year to discuss military-to-military collaboration, the general regional security situation, and bilateral cooperation in many domains.
