The world should respect Pakistan: Jeremy Corbyn

Advises Suu Kyi to respect rights of Rohingya Muslims.


The head of Britain’s primary opposition party, Jeremy Corbyn, has turned out in help of Pakistan and asked the world to regard the nation.

During an interview to BBC Urdu, Mr Corbyn said it was not the duty of Pakistan alone to battle terrorism on the grounds that the world in general expected to ward off the “collective challenge”.

When asked to remark on Donald Trump’s current allegations that Pakistan offered places of refuge to “operators of confusion”, the leader of the Labor Party appeared to contrast with the US president. “Pakistan is a country which should be treated respectfully. It should not be criticised from the outside,” he responded.

In a policy proclamation, Mr Trump likewise declared his choice to expand the number of American troops to be conveyed in Afghanistan.

Pakistan responded unequivocally to the speech and named it a “baffling” statement since it advantageously disregarded the sacrifices suffered by it in the battle against terrorism.

Along these lines, what Mr Corbyn said amid the meeting appeared to be in accordance with what Pakistan had expressed in light of Mr Trump’s discourse.

“Every country should play its role to bring an end to terrorism. This [theory] should be applied to every country in the world,” he said in light of an inquiry concerning the efforts required with respect to Pakistan to battle terrorists.

“I don’t even support President Trump’s policy to increase the number of troops in Afghanistan. It reflects their failure. The Afghan crisis can be solved only politically.”

Mr Corbyn additionally asked for help for Rohingya Muslims and “exhorted” Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi to regard their “human rights” a similar way the world did hers when she was under house arrest.

“I have an advice of respect for her,” he concuded. “When you [Suu Kyi] were under house arrest, we launched a campaign for your release, took out rallies and supported your struggle for human rights. So please be kind and take care of human rights of Rohingya Muslims”.

“Furthermore, ensure that they are given every single due right, including citizenship of Myanmar. They ought not be tossed out of their own homes.”
