Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said the government is making efforts to ensure safe and regulated return of stranded Pakistanis abroad.
Addressing Britain-based Pakistanis in Islamabad today (Friday), he said ten thousand Pakistanis have so far been brought back from different countries. About 2285 Pakistanis have been brought back from Britain through fourteen flights.
The Foreign Minister said we are cognizant of the problems of the stranded Pakistanis and our missions abroad have been directed to fully look after them.
He said apart from Pakistan International Airlines, we are trying to avail the services of other airlines to accelerate the process of the return of the stranded Pakistanis. An arrangement to this effect has been reached with Qatar.
