The UK government, however, distanced itself from its foreign office minister’s statement and said it is not the position of the UK government. “With regard to Pakistan, we respect Pakistan’s democratic system and we would not get into its domestic political affairs. We have longstanding ties with Pakistan and are monitoring developments,” a spokesperson of the government said.
