No US Diplomat or Congressmen to be Welcomed by Pakistan Senate

Senate Chairman, Raza Rabbani, has taken notice of an issue faced by Deputy Chairman Senate Maulana Ghafoor Hyderi.

Issuance of a US visa was delayed for the Deputy Chairman Senate which means he will not be able to attend a UN sponsored event in New York. The Inter-Parliamentary Union proceedings will be canceled due a simple delay. This was mentioned in a press release issued by the Senate.

The statement adds that,

Hyderi was scheduled to travel to the US as part of a delegation comprising of Senator Hyderi and Lt General (retd) Salahuddin Tirmizi. The delegation was to attend Inter Parliamentary (IPU) hearings at the United Nations (UN) headquarters in New York, USA, on February 13-14, 2017,

It should be mentioned that Pakistan was not included in the list of 7 countries on which Donald Trump wants to impose a travel ban. The ban has currently been smacked down by U.S courts but it seems like ‘extreme vetting’ is still in place even for supposed allies of the American Government.

No US Diplomat Coming to Pakistan Any Time Soon

Mr. Rabbani has said that no senate delegation can visit US until this issue is resolved and an explanation is provided by the US Government or the US Embassy in Pakistan.

He further added,

No delegation, member of Congress or diplomat of the US will be welcomed by the Senate of Pakistan, the Senate standing committees and senators in their official capacity till this issue is resolved.

Turkey’s Anadolu Agency’s story seems to portray something else. The agency claims that the US Embassy issued a visa to Senator Salahuddin Tirmizi and denied Senator Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Haideri’s visa without giving any reason.

No Real Reason Given

According to Anadolu Agency, US Embassy spokesperson Sharlina Hussain Morgan said, ”We don’t comment on individual visa cases.”

If the US authorities continue to hold the present stance of noncompliance then the situation could become worse between Pakistan and US in the coming days.

  • In the interest of the tax-paying public, whose money would have been used to fund this trip, can the Senate Chairman please confirm the credentials and knowledge-area of Senator Maulana for the said event, which is on Global Oceans and sustainable development.

    • You are right, but still we should take a stand as the Senator was not travelling in his personal capacity rather he was representing Pakistan as a government representative.
