ISLAMABAD - Federal Minister for Textile Industry Makhdoom Shahabuddin Thursday told the National Assembly that the issue of giving Most Favoured Nations status to India was not finalised yet, and both the countries were still busy discussing its knity gritty and some other issues. Responding to a supplementary question during question hour in the Lower House the minister said the cabinet approved this status to allow the process of normalisation of trade relations with India. To another question, he said the European Union had delisted Pakistani fishery establishments, exporting fish and seafood products to EU in 2007 due to their failure to meet European Unions Sanitary and Phytosanitary standards. Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar said the term 'MFN was not being understood rightly, adding that this status was nothing but a way to normalise trade relations between the two countries. She said after this status Pakistan would trade with India, as it did with other countries. To a question regarding permanent seat in the Security Council, Minister for Foreign Affairs in a written reply stated that the issue essentially pertains to the ongoing discussion at the United Nations concerning reforms of the UN Security Council. This is a matter of vital national interest for Pakistan. Let me say at the outset that Pakistan is not seeking permanent membership of the UN Security Council. We advocate a reform that is based on the principle of sovereign equality of member states as enshrined in the UN charter. We want a reform that will lead to a more united and strengthened United Nations. We want a reform where small and medium states have more opportunity to serve on the UN Security Council and make their contribution towards international peace and stability. Based on these principles, Pakistan has consistently and unambiguously advocated for expansion in the non-permanent membership category of the UN Security Council. The very notion of permanent membership negates the essence of democracy. We have therefore opposed creation of new centres of privilege by expansion in the permanent membership category for individual member states, she said. To a question Minister for Railways Haji Ghulam Ahmed Bilour told the house that 3779.98-acre area of Pakistan Railway was under unauthorised occupation. He told the house that a project for the procurement of 150 Diesel Electric Locomotives had been approved by the ECNEC, for which opening of technical offers were scheduled for December 14, 2011, as per Single Stage-Two Envelope bidding procedure according to PPRA rules. In a written reply, Minister for Railways said financial irregularities had been reported in various paras in the recent Audit Report upon the Accounts of Railways of 2009-2010. The observations have already been discussed in the DAC meeting held during January 2011, Recoveries/ action required are under process. Ministry for Commerce Makhdoom Amin Fahim in a written statement also informed that European Union had delisted Pakistani fisheries establishments exporting fish and seafood products to EU in 2007 due their failure to meet European Unions Sanitary and Phytosanitary standards. Resultantly, Pakistan is presently not exporting fish and other seafood products to European Union. Government of Pakistan has undertaken many steps to overcome the deficiencies in the fishery establishments. However European Union Food and Veterinary (FVO) experts have not been able to visit Pakistan due to security concerns, the minister stated.
