Full Text of the Speech by The British High Commissioner to Pakistan, Philip


Thank you very much to the Institute of Strategic Studies here in Islamabad for hosting me today. I am very grateful to the Institute, and in particular Ambassador Masood Khan and Ambassador Khalid Mahmood, for giving me the opportunity to share my parting thoughts on the future of UK- Pakistan relations.

I leave Pakistan next week at the end of my tenure as High Commissioner. I do so after more than two years here, but also having first visited the country more than 20 years ago.
