A two member delegation from the British High Commission visited the Centre for Pakistan and Gulf Studies (CPGS) office in Islamabad today. The delegation included the British First Secretary (Political), John Derrick and his colleague, FCO, Jonathan Turner. They were given a brief introductory presentation about the Centre, as well as a briefing on the CPGS mega-project, “SALAM: Innovating Means to Resolve Radical Extremism in Pakistan”.

Mr. Derrick expressed his pleasure at discovering that research on such important issues has been initiated by CPGS. He was of the view that these issues could in fact be resolved, but it would require close collaboration of all stakeholders and their combined efforts. CPGS had taken the first step in this direction, and he was hopeful of positive results. He assured the Centre of all possible support for the seminar, including their participation and intellectual contribution to the event.

Chairman Advisory Board Gen(R) Ehsan Ul Haq visited the Centre for Pakistan and Gulf Studies (CPGS) office in Islamabad on July 24th, 2013. He applauded the dedication of the CPGS team and lauded the supervision and guidance of CPGS President, Senator Sehar Kamran towards the team. He encouraged the team to continue their efforts which he said will, in time, come to be recognized for their merit. He complimented the work carried out by the Centre and assured his support for CPGS’ upcoming ventures and future projects.
