ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday appointed Dr Moeed Yusuf as his special assistant on national security and strategic policy planning.
A notification issued by the Cabinet Division said that Dr Yusuf would hold the status of the minister of state.
He would be the fourteenth special assistant to the prime minister.
Prior to his appointment as special assistant, Dr Moeed Yusuf was working as chairman of Strategic Policy Planning Cell — a position that he held since Sept 26. The cell was based in Prime Minister’s Office and had been tasked to provide input on issues that fell under National Security Committee’s mandate.
Dr Yusuf has in the past remained associated with the United States Institute for Peace, where he held the position of associate vice president of the Asia Centre.
