Pakistani PM to be given an opportunity to address Parliament

9 February 2021 07:15 am - 18     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


'The Speaker told Daily Mirror the parliamentary authorities would arrange a special session for him to address the House if there was a request for it, and said the matter was discussed at the party leaders’ meeting yesterday.

The Pakistani Prime Minister is to visit Sri Lanka on February 23, 2021. Prime Minister Khan would be the fourth foreign head of state to address the Sri Lankan Parliament in recent times, if his planned visit goes ahead. Late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher addressed the Sri Lankan Parliament in 1985,Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Sinawatra in 2013 and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2015.

    He is not only a great cricketer but unlike other sportsmen he is University educated with a degree from Oxford. He has been to Sri Lanka many times in the past as a Pakistani player and now we all should jointly welcome him, as the Pakistani Prime Minister, to our country.

    Pakistan is facing accusation that it commits genocide against its minorities. Many Pakistani activities outside Pakistan are campaigning against discrimination against minorities. Likewise,, China is facing accusation that it commits genocide and some MPs in my country are calling for boycott Olympic.
