WASHINGTON: Federal Minister for Planning and Development Ahsan Iqbal has said that the travel ban imposed by United States President Donald Trump on seven Muslim-majority countries will not affect Pakistan, ARY News reported.
He was addressing a ceremony organized on Kashmir Solidarity Day in the Pakistani embassy in Washington.
Pakistan’s Ambassador to US Jalil Abbas Jillani, former ambassadors and large number of Kashmiris were present in the function.
Iqbal, commenting on the government’s performance, said that Pakistan’s economic growth has positively affected the international organizations.

Pakistan Ambassador Jillani, addressing the ceremony, stated that Pakistani government has submitted dossiers to the US State Department and the United Nations regarding Indian atrocities in the occupied Kashmir.
When being asked if the dossiers have yielded any results, Iqbal urged that the issue should not be tackled in an emotional manner but be dealt sensibly.
