I am pleased by reports that the Government of Pakistan has agreed the framework and composition of the proposed National Commission for Minorities. The British Government regularly discusses human rights concerns with Pakistan. We will follow the work of the commission with close interest and urge the Government of Pakistan to ensure it is empowered to secure progress on these important issues.
