Indian and Chinese soldiers were recently involved in a battle across the Actual Line of Control, while Pakistan brews nuisance for India.

The three service chiefs in Pakistan attended a rare briefing at the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) headquarters yesterday.

Chief of the Pakistan army - General Qamar Bajwa, Chief of the Naval staff - Admiral Zafar Mehmood Abbasi, and Chief of the Air staff - Marshal Mujahid Anwar Khan were summoned to the intelligence agency’s headquarters last evening.

According to the Dawn newspaper, the aim of the meeting was to analyse Pakistan's preparedness to counter India's “sinister designs”.

A rare meeting, this marked the summoning of all Pakistan chiefs to the headquarters.  The service chiefs normally meet at joint tri-service forums which reportedly haven't been held since July 2018. 

Allegedly, the ISI is also giving briefings to the political leadership of Pakistan. As per reports, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has been summoned to the ISI headquarters twice in the last three months. Once on April 23, and then on June 3. His visits are being called intelligence briefings on alleged security threats.

What is brewing?

The top brass in Pakistan hasn't convened at the ISI headquarters in this fashion for over decades

The Prime Minister of Pakistan himself visiting the ISI headquarters is also not common protocol.
