“Through our historic connections arising from the Commonwealth, Britain has developed a strong and long-standing relationship with Pakistan. This relationship is further strengthened by over a million strong Pakistani diaspora living in the United Kingdom, who make an incredibly important contribution to our society, our country’s economy and our culture.

I am proud that we were the party from whom the first Member of Parliament of Pakistani origin was elected to serve in the House of Commons. We now have five Labour Members of Parliament sitting in the House of Commons as well as members in the House of Lords. The Labour Party has always supported Pakistan, and will continue to do so. While in Government we not only helped to increase trade between Britain and Pakistan to help its economy grow, but also announced plans to significantly raise bilateral aid with a focus on improving its education and health care systems. We want to cooperate with the Pakistani Government to ensure stability inside Pakistan and across the wider region. With the launch of the Labour Friends of Pakistan last year, I am sure the relationship between the Labour Party, British Pakistanis and Pakistan will strengthened.

Rt Hon Ed Miliband MP – Leader of the Labour Party.
