Pakistan lodges protest with Canada over MP’s remarks
ISLAMABAD – Pakistan yesterday lodged a strong diplomatic protest with Canada over a Canadian MP’s “irresponsible and undiplomatic” remarks on recent political fluidity in Pakistan. The Canadian High Commissioner to Pakistan was summoned to the Foreign Office and a strong démarche was served, according to sources. The diplomat was told that the recent statement against Pakistan by Canadian Member of Parliament Tom Kmiec was against diplomatic norms and highly irresponsible. Tom Kmiec, who belongs to Canada’s Conservative Party, allegedly dragged security establishment in the political volatility in Pakistan.
