ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Interior Ahsan Iqbal said Pakistan is contemplating issuing electronic visas to facilitate genuine investors and visitors.

"We are in consultation with the foreign office in this regard,” Iqbal told members of Pakistani community at the high commission in London.

The minister hoped the measure will make the country one of the best investment and tourist destinations.

On a question relating to occupied Kashmir, Iqbal said the people of the held valley are facing the worst kind of atrocities at the hands of Indian forces. He called upon the international community, including the UK, to play their vital role in delivering justice.

Iqbal told the Pakistani diaspora that the country has now become one of the best destinations for investors with an attractive market of 207 million people and an emerging middle class.

He urged upon them to take into account investment opportunities in various parts of the economy, including the information technology sector. Overseas Pakistanis can play their vital role in the socio-economic development of the country.

The minister said that Pakistan was now a strong and stable democracy and stressed the need for political stability and continuity of policies for the prosperity of the country.

Pakistan’s Deputy High Commissioner to United Kingdom (UK) Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri , Members of the UK Parliament Illyas Amin Qureshi and Muhammad Yasin, officials of Pakistan High Commission (PHC), a large number of British-Pakistanis, and journalists, attended the reception.
