June 8, 2021

LAHORE:Governor Ch Muhammad Sarwar has said he held successful meetings with more than 100 politicians and other dignitaries including members of Congress, senators, governors and mayors during his visit to the United States.

Talking to the media at Governor House here on Monday, the governor said, “The bill to declare Punjab and California as sister states was tabled in the California Assembly in my presence and a historic agreement was also signed between the Agricultural University of Faisalabad and the University of California. Pakistan is highlighting Kashmir and Palestine issues on all international forums.”

He said Pakistan’s efforts for war on terror are being acknowledged across the world. Prime Minister Imran Khan and his team have saved Pakistan from economic bankruptcy. Jehangir Tareen group and its members will support our government on every matter including provincial and federal budgets, he said. The governor met with the US officials and apprised them about Pakistan's role in Afghan peace process under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan along with Pakistan’s initiatives to combat climate crisis and Pakistan’s handling of the coronavirus. He said he is glad that the US is finally acknowledging Pakistan’s efforts for regional peace and stability.

The governor said that he had a successful meeting with US Senator Chris Van Hallen who has tabled an economic package bill for Pakistan. He is hopeful that he will be able to pass the bill along with other senators, the governor said and added that India has always been involved in negative propaganda against Pakistan in the world but ever since Prime Minister Imran Khan came to power, Pakistan has emerged successful on diplomatic front.

Pakistan’s narrative is now being heard in the world and our efforts for regional peace, especially for Afghan peace process, is being applauded by the world, he added. Ch Sarwar said that after the recent escalation of tension between Israel and Palestine, the international community must stop turning a blind eye to Israel’s war crimes and immediately act to halt the genocide of innocent Palestinians. The inhumane and illegal 672 days long curfew in Kashmir is also a gross violation of international law so the United States and peaceful nations must play a role in resolving Kashmir and Palestine conflicts, he said. Replying to a question, the governor said Pakistani and Indian Sikh communities in the United States are on the same page and the Sikh community always stands by Pakistan's stance on issues like Kashmir.
