Foreign OfficePakistan expresses concern over JASTA to target sovereign states

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Pakistan on Wednesday noted with concern the overturning of the United States Presidential veto on Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) which is a law passed by the US Congress  ” aimed  at targeting sovereign states”.

“We have noted with concern the overturning of the U.S. Presidential veto on JASTA, a law passed by US Congress aimed at targeting sovereign states,” a statement of Foreign Office spokesman said in Islamabad.

It said many countries across Europe and in the Middle East have also expressed similar concern over JASTA. Pakistan had earlier also expressed anguish over the adoption of a domestic legislation with extra-territorial application.

Infact, in his address to the 71st UNGA Session, the Prime Minister had underscored that “terrorism is a global phenomenon, which must be addressed comprehensively in all its forms, and that the international community must coordinate its efforts to accomplish this.”

He had emphasized that “these efforts should be taken collectively and not unilaterally by the passage of any laws with extra-territorial application, targeted against certain countries.”
