Britain has nothing to do with Pakistan’s internal politics: UK Foreign Secretary

Pakistan’s internal politics was a matter for Pakistani politicians themselves Miliband told reporters at the Durbar Court of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

He also spoke about challenges and dangers faced by people in terms of religious extremism, nuclear proliferation, climate change and global inequality.

“We cannot confront these challenges without recognising the benefit of diversity that comes through shared values and institutions. No one can opt out of these challenges and dangers,” the Daily Times quoted Miliband, as saying.

Britain is already a diverse country, and the ruling Labour Party government is endeavouring to extend these shared activities to all the sections of the community, he said earlier this week.

Britain has accepted Muslims with an open heart and though the country was once a colonial power, it was no longer so, the daily quoted him, as saying.

Urging to cement the differences between various communities and faiths, Miliband said the European Union was still debating whether Turkey, a country with 95 percent of the population being Muslim, could become a member of the 27-member organisation or not. (ANI)
