ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Former British Parliamentarian, Right Honourable Sir Hugo Swire called on Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan in Islamabad on Thursday. He was accompanied by Sir Anwar Parvez, Lord Zameer Chaudhry and Abdul Qadeer Hamza. Adviser on Commerce Abdul Razzaq Dawood and Chairman Board of Investment Syed Zubair Haider Gilani were also present during the meeting. The meeting discussed investment issues related to mutual understanding between both the countries and regional security. Earlier,  a cross-party delegation of UK Parliamentarians led by Debbie Abrahams, Chair of All-Parties Parliamentary Kashmir Group (APPKG), called on Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday. According to the declaration, the prime minister commended the Group’s consistent focus on the Jammu and Kashmir dispute and noted the important contribution made by its earlier reports on the human rights situation in the Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJ&K). Imran Khan apprised the delegation of the dire human rights and humanitarian conditions in IOJ&K in the aftermath of India’s illegal and unilateral actions of August 5, 2019. He underlined that 8 million Kashmiris were under a military siege for the past six months, with all their rights and freedoms taken away from them. The prime minister also highlighted the threat to peace and security posed by the Indian leadership’s belligerent rhetoric and aggressive actions on the ground. He further underlined that the RSS-inspired BJP government’s Hindutva ideology was squeezing the Kashmiris in IOJ&K on the one hand and constricting the space for India’s minorities on the other hand.
