British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab Meets Prime Minister Imran Khan
Prime Minister Imran Khan urged the international community to stand in solidarity with the Afghan people, to engage positively and to create incentives to ensure a peaceful, stable and inclusive regime.
He spoke with British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab, who met him on Friday in Islamabad.
The Prime Minister also warned of the role of “spoilers”, both inside and outside Afghanistan, which could destabilize the situation.
He stressed the importance of a peaceful, secure and stable Afghanistan for Pakistan and regional stability.
Imran Khan noted that it is essential to stabilize the security situation in Afghanistan, take measures to consolidate peace and prevent any mass exodus. In this context, the prevention of humanitarian crises and the stabilization of the economy were urgent needs.
The Prime Minister further sensitized the British side to the gross human rights violations in illegally occupied Indian Jammu and Kashmir, including the inhuman removal of the mortal remains of Syed Ali Shah Geelani, the top leader of the Cashmere.
Bilaterally, Imran Khan noted in particular the long-standing relations and strong people-to-people ties between the two countries.
The Prime Minister expressed his concerns about keeping Pakistan on the Red List, which causes inconvenience to people with dual nationality.
Issues relating to climate change, peace and stability in South Asia and the global geopolitical situation were also discussed.
