Europe India Chamber of Commerce writes to French Ambassador to the EU on the EU-Pakistan Strategic Dialogue and says that it was the most inappropriate time for EU to hold the Dialogue with Pakistan given the wide and violent anti-French and anti-European demonstration in the country.
Europe’s Apex Chamber EICC asks EU to review the GSP+ trade privilege to Pakistan, a country which is regarded as an international jihad’s tourist resort. A time has come when the question should not be whether Pakistan deserves GSP+ privileges, but whether it is time to impose tough economic sanctions on the country. The letter to the EU Trade Commissioner says that it is perhaps high time that institutions like the European Union put their considerable global influence and moral weight in leading a multilateral push for putting Pakistan on the Black List of FATF.
