Pakistan, Britain discuss security, economic ties

Jul 18 2013, 8:48am CDT | by

Islamabad, July 18 (IANS) Visiting British Foreign Secretary William Hague Thursday met Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and discussed ways to revitalise Pakistan's economy, deal with the energy crisis, create a pro-investment climate and improve the security situation.

Islamabad, July 18 — Visiting British Foreign Secretary William Hague Thursday met Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and discussed ways to revitalise Pakistan's economy, deal with the energy crisis, create a pro-investment climate and improve the security situation.

The two leaders discussed how Britain can contribute in these areas and benefit from investment and business opportunities in Pakistan, Xinhua cited the prime minister's office as saying in a statement.

Sharif reaffirmed Pakistan's commitment to support all initiatives aimed at promoting peace and stability in the region as well as in Afghanistan.

Hague arrived in Islamabad Wednesday for a two-day visit, just a few weeks after British Prime Minister David Cameron visited the country.

The two leaders discussed the entire spectrum of bilateral relations and expressed satisfaction at the direction and trajectory of the relationship, the statement said.

They noted that the visit last month of Cameron sent the right message for an enduring partnership between the two countries.

Hague expressed full support for all initiatives and reaffirmed Britain's desire to contribute to Pakistan's development and prosperity.

On Wednesday, Hague met Pakistan's Advisor on National Security and Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz, and said Britain has plans to work in partnership with Pakistan to provide expertise and support in developing counter-terrorism strategy.

Hague acknowledged the sacrifices made by Pakistani people in the war against terrorism.

On Afghanistan, Hague said a good relationship with Pakistan's neighbour was the key to security.

He said both Britain and Pakistan agree on the importance of peace, stability and security in Afghanistan and support an Afghan-led and Afghan-owned reconciliation process.

EDINBURGH, Scotland (AP) — Voters in Scotland turned out in unprecedented numbers for an independence referendum and with most votes counted Friday, results suggested a strong wish to keep Scotland's 307-year union with England.

Rupert Murdoch: If Scotland Votes to Split from UK, Cameron Will Have to Go

On Thursday’s broadcast of “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on the Fox News Channel, 21st Century Fox chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch weighed in on the pending Scotland independence vote. According to Murdoch, should Scotland split from the United Kingdom, it would probably mean the end for David Cameron’s reign as prime minister. “I think that if they lose it – if they are splintered, he will probably have to go,” Murdoch said. “I think there is about a 70 percent likeli ...

In a 50-50 Dead Heat, The Fate of the UK Would Be Decided by... A Coin Toss?

Sep 18 2014 7:12am CDT | Source: Big Government

It sounds mad, but a toss of the coin could, technically, decide the fate of the United Kingdom and Scotland.  Oddly enough, even with polls as close as they currently are, the Edinburgh Agreement signed by David Cameron and Alex Salmond last year setting out the plans for today's referendum vote doesn't account for the fact that there may be an equal number of votes on both sides. Of course it is mas ...

Quite honestly, I’m not shocked at all that so many apathetic Americans are not shocked over the ISIS voodoo Muslim monsters beheading people. The dumbing down of America has been on the runaway fast-track for more than 50 years and counting, just in time to brainwash unsuspecting sheep into voting for an America-hating Muslim community organizer dedicated to the fundamental transformation of the greatest nation on earth into some “socia ...

What if the United States Lost Texas?

Sep 17 2014 4:40pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

There are plenty of things that President Obama has had to worry about since being re-elected president in 2012 -- a continuing malaise about the economy, world crises that pop up with wack-a-mole frequency, and a lower house that makes even the minimal level of government functioning almost impossible. What he doesn't have to worry about, however, is whether or not the United States will split apart, because red-state bile notwithstanding, most folks would rather h ...

Sep 17 2014 10:31am CDT | Source: Big Government

National independence movements are on the rise across Europe. From Scotland to Spain - as the European Union’s stranglehold hardens, demands for sovereignty are becoming even more vocal. In Scotland, a 300-year-old Union is under threat, as cession from the United Kingdom is seriously contemplated. In Spain, one million Catalonians marched against rule from Madrid. Even in Germany, the EU’s most committed member, a Eurosceptic movement ...
