In his remarks on the occasion, the High Commissioner said: “The upcoming book by renowned photographer Colin Prior will showcase the beauty of Pakistan’s ice mountains and promote our country as one of the choicest tourist destinations. In line with the Prime Minister’s vision and policy focus to promote tourism in Pakistan, we have been undertaking several initiatives and sponsored this coffee table book as part of our efforts to that end. Pakistan being the custodian of ancient civilizations, offers endless vistas for adventure, cultural, religious, recreational and environmental tourism. We invite the world tourists to visit Pakistan to enjoy the pristine beauty of its landscape and the traditionally warm hospitality of its people. Similarly, Pakistan is open for foreign investment in its tourism sector.”

“There remains a great opportunity to raise the profile of tourism in Pakistan both here, in Europe and in the US which will give exposure to, what I believe to be, the most inspiring mountain destination in the world. Since my early 20’s, I have been fascinated by the character of this vertical landscape and its “Balti culture”. I am sincerely grateful to have the privilege of High Commissioner Nafees Zakaria’s sponsorship of the forthcoming book that captures the real beauty of Pakistan. I am looking forward to seeing the printed book which spans a period of twenty-three years and six, month long trips, which have been amongst some of the most remarkable journeys of my life.”

The renowned landscape photographer Colin Prior is inspired by the beauty of Pakistan’s landscapes, especially its mountains. He made several expeditions to Pakistan to compile the book. This would be the first high-quality photography book devoted to the spectacular Karakoram Mountains of Pakistan.

The High Commission of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan in South Africa in collaboration with authorities from the Republic of South Africa and its neighboring countries was able to evacuate 108 stranded/destitute Pakistani citizens from the region by a Special Chartered Flight on 13th May, 2020.

The Special Flight was organized by a local Muslim Trust Fund called Baitun Nusra essentially catering for stranded Tablighi Jamat members who were visiting some African countries and other Pakistani nationals stuck in the region. The evacuation process also included several neighboring countries namely Botswana (01), Eswatini (02), Malawi (20), Mozambique (36), and Zambia (28). In addition to this, the High Commission also repatriated stranded/destitute citizens from South African cities of Cape Town, Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth. Most of these Pakistani nationals were visiting South Africa on short-term tourist, business and students visas.

The group of stranded Pakistanis from five neighboring countries was transported into South Africa with the help of South African authorities, who played pivotal role to materialize the whole evacuation process. This involved thousands of miles of inland travel and complex cross border movement with security and safety.
All this process took place under the strict lockdown environment both in South Africa and its neighboring countries. The High Commission of Pakistan made arrangements for logistics and transportation of destitute Pakistani nationals to facilitate their repatriation to Pakistan.

The Special Flight will also bring back about 104 South African citizens who are stranded in Pakistan. This was second such special flight carrying stranded Pakistani citizens from South Africa. It may be noted that previously 81 Pakistani nationals were evacuated to Pakistan on 20 April, whereas 83 South African citizens were transported back to South Africa. As of now, the number of evacuations to Pakistan stands at 189 and from Pakistan to South Africa about 187 totaling 376 evacuees on both sides.

The whole process of repatriation through a Special Flight was an outcome of efficient and cooperative working relationship between authorities in Pakistan, South Africa, neighboring countries and the Baitun Nusra, in the prevailing situation arising out of COVID-19 pandemic.

National Day of Pakistan observed at the High Commission

High Commissioner congratulates Diaspora, commends their contribution


Pakistan Day was marked by Flag Hoisting ceremony at the Pakistan High Commission London today. In deference to the instructions of the Government of Pakistan and the UK Government’s guidelines, the Flag was hoisted in a simple ceremony live streamed on the Mission’s Official Facebook for virtual, not physical, participation of the Pakistani community keeping in view their sentimental attachment to the National Day. The Facebook broadcast was viewed by thousands of community members.

High Commissioner Mohammad Nafees Zakaria hoisted the flag. Messages of the President and the Prime Minister of Pakistan were also read out on the occasion.

Congratulating the Diaspora, the High Commissioner shed light on the importance of the National Day of Pakistan. He paid glowing tributes to the Quaid-i-Azam, Allama Iqbal and other founding fathers, who, through their unwavering resolve and visionary leadership created Pakistan. Mr Zakaria said: “Today, when we review the spirit behind Pakistan’s freedom movement and validity of Two-Nation Theory, we feel more and more grateful and admire our Quaid, Jinnah, national poet of Pakistan, Allama Iqbal and Leadership of Pakistan Movement for their vision and far-sightedness.”

Giving an overview of Pakistan economy, the High Commissioner said: “Economy is on an upward trajectory. Global economic focus is shifting to the region of Pakistan’s location. In the region, Pakistan’s economic prospects are manifested in the reports of the international financial institutions and prestigious publications terming Pakistan an attractive destination for investment, business and tourism. The revision of travel advisories for Pakistan by several countries was an expression of confidence in country’s investment prospects and opportunities. With a view to benefiting mutually from the economic opportunities, we are actively engaging the British Government.”

The High Commissioner said China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) has gained strategic and prime economic importance for not only Pakistan and China but for the entire region. He expressed that CPEC continues to be one of the top priorities of Pakistan and the Government has established Special Economic Zones (SEZs) under its banner for attracting foreign direct investment (FDI).

Speaking about bilateral ties with the UK, the High Commissioner said UK-Pakistan relations are marked by cordiality, warmth, strong political goodwill, high level exchanges, close economic cooperation and people to people contact and have grown from strength to strength over decades. The Royal Couple’s visit to Pakistan last October, in keeping with the longstanding tradition of Royal visits, was a significant milestone in bilateral relations.

Mr Zakaria appreciated the contributions being made by Pakistani and Kashmiri diaspora in the UK to the development of economy, politics and society of the United Kingdom and Pakistan. He expressed: “British Pakistani Parliamentarians have been instrumental in promoting bilateral cooperation. Mayors, Counselors and sizeable number of professionals not only help strengthen relations significantly but also serve as a bridge between the High Commission and the Community, at large.”

The High Commissioner reiterated Pakistan’s political, moral and diplomatic support for the Kashmiris who have been under siege of Indian occupation forces for the last 231 days. He said a reign of state backed terror against Kashmiris has been unleashed and the stories of Kashmiris’ sufferings and torture by Indian forces have been widely reported by the world media and HR NGOs. Mr Zakaria deeply appreciated the strong reaction from the British Parliamentarians against grave human rights violations in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK). However, he added, it is important that justice is delivered to the Kashmiri victims and the perpetrators must be brought to book.

Updating the Pakistani community about Pandemic Coronavirus, the High Commissioner said Government of Pakistan is taking all precautionary measures to prevent the disease and the efforts are continuing. The High Commission has also been relaying the updates from Pakistan. For its part, the High Commission has been issuing guidelines from time to time and at the same time assisting the community and those in need of consular services, informed Mr Zakaria.

The Consulates of Pakistan in Birmingham, Bradford, Glasgow and Manchester also organized simple Flag Hoisting ceremonies.
