How many Pakistani are still in Guantanamo Bay?
ISLAMABAD- The foreign minister Khawaja Asif has said five Pakistan inmates are currently detained at Guantanamo Bay.
“Our mission in Washington has been coordinating with the US State Department to discuss legal options for the repatriation of these Pakistanis from Guantanamo Bay,” said Asif.
Two of the inmates are facing charges while the remaining three have not been charged with any crime. One is held in connection with the 9/11 attack and other is guilty of conspiracy and murder. Efforts are being made to bring the three detainees back to the country, he added.
The foreign minister further stated that Pakistan is strongly highlighting the Kashmir dispute at the international forum, including the UN, Human Rights Commission and the OIC.
Responding to questions from lawmakers, he said the prime minister met with the UN Secretary-General in China and discussed Indian atrocities in the occupied valley. He added that our diplomatic missions abroad are also exposing India’s state terrorism to the world.
Asif added that Pakistan wishes for the honourable and dignified return of Afghan refugees to their homeland and there are currently fifty-four refugee camps in Balochistan and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa which are used by terrorists to merge in.
