Lt Gen Naveed Mukhtar, the current director general of the Inter-Services Intelligence received such (IMET) training.

US National Defence University (NDU), Washington, had kept aside 66 slots for officers from Pakistan for the next academic year, seats reserved for Pakistani officers for more than a decade, but the Trump administration has now refused to provide funds for their training, official sources said.

The fund for training Pakistani officers came from the US government’s International Military Education and Training Programme (IMET) but no funds were made available for Pakistan for the next academic year.
The university has been asked to fill the positions for the next year with officers from other nations.
