Pakistan Thursday appreciated the prompt steps of UK authorities taken against anti-country propaganda on London Cabs which impinged the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Pakistan.

“We are aware of the sinister intentions behind such malicious campaigns. These should not be repeated anywhere,” a Foreign Office statement said.

Pakistan had conveyed its concern on the display of anti–Pakistan propaganda on London Cabs , both to the British High Commission in Islamabad and the Foreign Commonwealth Office in UK.

The Transport for London authorities, after taking suitable action for removal of the malicious material, had initiated an inquiry in the matter and assured disciplinary action against the perpetrators.

The cabs inscribed with anti-Pakistan slogans were pictured in London and uploaded on social media websites by users.

In September, the Foreign Office had summoned the Swiss ambassador over the public display of anti-Pakistan posters by a group in Geneva.

The foreign ministry had protested against the Swiss government statement, and said the posters were being used for propaganda by the banned Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA).

Pakistan said the BLA had been banned not only by Islamabad but several other countries of the world.
