Karamat may be Pak's envoy to US

July 22, 2004 12:56 IST

Former Pakistan Army Chief  Gen. Jehangir Karamat is likely to be appointed as its envoy  to Washington to succeed Asharf Jahangir Qazi who has been  appointed as UN special envoy to Iraq.

Gen. Karamat's name is on the top of list of  candidates being considered by Pakistan President Pervez  Musharraf, media reports said here today. 

 Musharraf succeeded Karamat as the Chief of Army after  the latter quit following differences with then Prime Minister  Nawaz Sharif over the constitution of the National Security  Council, comprising the top brass of the army, navy and air force.
