Sri Lanka Muslim Congress thanks Pakistan

Saturday, March 30, 2013

Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) Deputy leader and Eastern Provincial Council Minister Nazeer Ahamed extended his gratitude to Pakistan for supporting Sri Lanka at the UNHRC at Geneva.

Ahamed said he noted with a profound sense of appreciation how Pakistan had canvassed support from the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) nations despite the US pressuring them to support its resolution citing the recent attacks on Muslims by certain extremist sections in the country.

The SLMC deputy leader said Pakistan has stood by Sri Lanka since the day the great nation was created and has asked for nothing in return.

He recalled the time when Sri Lanka's High Commissioner called on then President Zia Ul Haq to help quell an uprising here.

President Zia ul Haq had told the High Commissioner that Pakistan does not charge money for help rendered to friends in their time of need.

Ahamed said he was certain that relations between Pakistan and Sri Lanka will continue to grow from strength to strength in the days and the years ahead.
