He was granted approval to serve as the head of the military alliance for three years, reports said.

The issue of General Raheel was a hard decision due to rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Iran but Pakistan chose to let him join the alliance as its first chief due to close ties with Riyadh.

Opposition parties have been criticising the government over the controversial appointment, claiming that the alliance is formed against Shia-majority Iran and will harm Pakistan's relations with its neighbour.
