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.

None of Our Leaders Have Convinced Us they Deserve to Win the Election

Nov 4 2014 2:59am CST | Source: Big Government

Those wishing to understand British politics ahead of next year’s General Election could do worse than consider the following two statistics. First, according to the current trend of polls, the combined vote share of the main two parties is lower than at any point since the Second World War. In 1951 Labour and the Conservatives between them earned 96.8 percent of public support. A poll from Lord Ashcroft yesterday put their current combined vote share be ...

Cameron Plans 'German Friendly' EU Reforms To Save British Membership

Nov 3 2014 9:18am CST | Source: Big Government

David Cameron is considering cutting benefits for EU migrants rather than curbing immigration altogether in an effort to appease Germany. The German Chancellor Angela Merkel is believed to have told the Prime Minister that if he takes steps to curb EU migration she will withdraw support for Britain's membership of the EU. The Prime Minister had hoped to put an annual quota on the number of migrants coming from the EU but Merkel warned this would be a “point on no return” on the pa ...

Nov 1 2014 8:06am CDT | Source: Big Government

Once again today we see more hypocrisy from The Labour Party. Simon Danczuk has said that we are ‘swamped’ with immigrants. We must remember that it was the Labour Party that opened our borders unconditionally to mass uncontrolled immigration to nearly half a billion people. They failed us.

Taxpayers' money is funding corruption in foreign countries, a damning report has revealed. The Independent Commission for Aid Impact (ICAI) says the British aid is actively encouraging corrupt practices, such as bribery.
