We regularly raise our concerns about the human rights situation with the Government of Pakistan at a senior level. We continue to urge the Pakistani Government to guarantee the rights of all people in Pakistan, particularly the most vulnerable, including women, minorities and children, as laid down in the Constitution of Pakistan and in accordance with international standards.
