Pakistan High Commissioner to UK meets Prime Minister Boris Johnson

Pakistan may be moved from UK’s ‘red’ to ‘amber’ list


LONDON, Pakistan High Commissioner to UK Moazzam Ahmad Khan on Saturday met British Prime Minister Boris Johnson at Sandhurst town in Berkshire, England.

High Commissioner Moazzam Ahmad Khan, in a social media post on the official twitter handle of Pakistan HC London, said he was honoured to meet Prime Minister Boris Johnson in Sandhurst.

“Working hand in hand with UK to take Pakistan-UK friendship to the next level,” he added in the post.

According to official sources, Johnson’s remarks were in response to the Pakistani delegation raising the issue of the “red list” and how inconvenient it was for thousands of Pakistanis.

The PM assured the delegation that his government was looking at the data and “considering possibilities”, based on scientific advice.

The UK PM’s remarks indicate that there is a chance that Pakistan may be moved to the “amber list” in a few weeks.

The Pakistani delegation included Moazzam Ali Khan and three other diplomats.

Johnson said that he is looking forward to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s visit to the United Kingdom soon. The Pakistani delegation told the UK premier that the South Asian country, too, is looking forward to the visit.

The Pakistani delegation was attending the annual ceremony to honor Pakistani cadets who attend the prestigious academy every year. Two Pakistani cadets passed out yesterday from the military academy.

The prime minister paid tribute to the military cadets for completing their training at Sandhurst.
