In a major development, the United Kingdom (UK) has removed Pakistan from its list of “red list countries,” British High Commissioner Christian Turner announced.
“Pleased to confirm Pakistan is off the red list. I know how difficult the last 5 months were for so many who rely on close links between Pakistan & UK,” he wrote on his official Twitter handle on Friday.
He also thanked Federal Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umer, Prime Minister’s aide on health Dr Faisal Sultan, National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) and other relevant departments for their close “for their close collaboration”.
In a follow-up tweet, Turner said the UK will continue to work closely with Pakistan to ensure data sharing and safeguard public health in both countries. “No one is safe until everyone is safe.”
