Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif described his meeting with the British Foreign Secretary David Miliband as 'constructive' and said there was a total consensus on efforts to nation building in Pakistan. Talking to media here in London, the Punjab chief minister said the UK role in promoting democracy in Pakistan had been positive. "The UK played a significant role in return of Pakistan political leaders who made London their temporary home prior to the February 18, 2007 parliamentary elections," he said. He said during their 45-minute meeting at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the concerns of the Pakistani society and that of the UK-based Pakistani Diaspora were conveyed to the British officials regarding the arrest of 11 Pakistani students on suspicion of terror and their subsequent release after the charges were dropped and attempts to deport them even though they have valid visas to study in the UK. Shahbaz spoke of the challenges confronting Pakistan and said the Swat peace deal was signed in the best interest of country and the Parliament had given its approval following a request from the Awami National Party in NWFP. He said the extremism and militancy could only be countered through the provision of inexpensive justice to the people and the provision of health, education and other social facilities to the masses.
