Why is the UK not troubling to insist itself on the human rights concern [in IoK] because of organization passions?” she railed, adding that Pakistan was told that civils rights were a central emphasis of Western countries’ diplomacies.
” But if you do not relatively apply your very own principles of foreign policy across the board […] this indicates that there is no regard of civils rights by these Western states.”
