Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar announced on Friday the suspension of re-admission agreements with the Western countries - excluding the United Kingdom - because of its severe misuse, Radio Pakistan reported.

Nisar said that according to re-admission agreements, Pakistanis traveling to western countries had to be deported after proper verification but many countries have been deporting them without consulting Pakistani authorities.

He revealed that about 90,000 people were deported to Pakistan in 2014.

Nisar said over the last few months scores of Pakistanis traveling abroad without required documents were sent back to Pakistan on charges of terrorism but without verification if they actually belonged to Pakistan.

In reply to a question, Nisar said India’s real face was exposed in recent acts of violence against minorities, particularly Muslims.

Meanwhile, the interior minister said operation will soon be launched against facilitators of terrorists.


bash gul | 6 years ago | Reply The Saudi Authority once packed thousands of Bangladeshis on planes and sent them back to BD without varifying their country of origin, whereby the prime minister of BD had to come to Riyadh to convince the Saudi Aurhorities to first verify their status. Is Pakistan in a position to refuse from any western state ? When the sheikhs of the gulf were denied hunting licences, the UAE government put a quota of 15% of Pakistanis could be employed in any firm.
