NA announces to withdraw decision of hosting CPC
ISLAMABAD (APP)-The National Assembly of Pakistan has announced its decision to pull back as host of the 61st Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference (CPC) as a consequence of the Emergency Tele-Conference of the Executive Committee of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association on Wednesday.

In a statement, National Assembly Secretariat said Pakistan had agreed to host the Conference with a view to strengthening democracy, dialogue and cooperation among the developing countries of the Commonwealth.

However, at no point had the elected Parliament of Pakistan shown even a distant sign of flexibility on its principled and historic stand on Jammu and Kashmir.

The unsettled dispute remains the flash-point for regional peace and stability and is very much alive on the United Nations’ agenda.
