ISLAMABAD: Switzerland’s Ambassador-designate, Thomas Kolly, was summoned to the Foreign Office by Additional Secretary (Europe) Zaheer A. Janjua on the display of anti-Pakistan posters and an insidious paid campaign against Pakistan.
A strong protest was lodged with the Ambassador on allowing the use of Swiss territory by elements linked with a terrorist organisation perpetrating terrorism and violence in Pakistan. It was underlined that these posters had been sponsored by a terrorist organisation proscribed by Pakistan as well as some other countries.
The Ambassador was asked to convey to his government Pakistan’s strong protest on allowing its space to a terrorist organization to carry out activities against Pakistan’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, in contravention of the UN Charter and international law.
The Swiss Government was urged that as host country and a close partner, action should be taken against the perpetrators of such a malicious campaign.
