Pakistan summons British High Commissioner, protests display of anti-state slogans on London cabs
ISLAMABAD: Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua, called in the British High Commissioner, Thomas Drew, today to convey Pakistan’s serious concern at the display of slogans on London cabs that directly attack Pakistan’s territorial integrity and sovereignty.
The High Commissioner was informed that Pakistan, in line with the UN Charter, rejects actions and advertisements with malicious content that impinge on our sovereignty and territorial integrity. The issue was also being raised with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office by our High Commissioner in London.
Pakistan is aware of the intentions of such sinister and malicious campaigns, which should not be allowed on the soil of a friendly country.
Several vehicles were seen with the anti-Pakistan posters embossed on car frames. A separatist organisation also took to Twitter to claim that it was their campaign.
