Islamabad, Sept 25: Pakistan’s Parliamentary Committee on National Security has decided that no United Nations group would be allowed to visit the country to discuss “sensitive issues” in the future.
The decision came after a recent visit to Pakistan by the UN Working Group on Enforced and Involuntary Disappearances.
Senator Raza Rabbani, who headed a meeting, asked the foreign and interior ministries to abstain from welcoming international intervention in local issues, The Express Tribune reports.
Sources familiar with the meeting revealed that Rabbani strongly criticised the UN group for its desire to meet with military officials, the paper said.
According to the report, he was happy that the UN team was not entertained by the military leadership, saying that such a meeting would have been unnecessary.
The committee had earlier expressed serious concerns over the arrival of the UN group in Pakistan. (ANI)
