New Delhi :  

The outgoing Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit on Monday met Chinese Ambassador to India Luo Zhaohui on 90th anniversary of Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA).

A week ago, Basit had met Chinese and Bhutan envoys in the national capital. The meetings were not taken in good taste by the South block.

Sources had said that both meetings were held on the request of Abdul Basit.

Basit had sought early retirement and his request was accepted by former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

Basit, who was set to retire from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in April 2018, had "submitted an application to former Prime Minister Sharif for his early retirement which was accepted," Geo News had reported.
