The foreign affairs ministry shuffle includes appointment of director general (UN) Khalil Ahmad Hashmi as the Permanent Representative of Pakistan to the UN in Geneva; Additional Secretary (AIT) at MoFa Muhammad Aejaz as Pakistan’s ambassador to Hungary; Pakistani Charge d’ Affaires to Pyongyang Syed Sajjad Haider as the new ambassador to Kuwait.
