Britain, Pakistan agree to facilitate return of illegal migrants
London, Aug.27 : Pakistan and Britain have agreed to facilitate the return of thousands of Pakistanis who are detained or living illegally in the United Kingdom.

Interacting with media persons after a meeting with British Home Secretary Allan Johnson here, Pakistan Interior Advisor Rehman Malik said both countries have reached an accord to facilitate the return of the illegal migrants.

Malik said Pakistani High Commission would issue passports to such people free of cost to help them to return.

“Let me be very clear and inform Pakistanis (here) that they must not think that they can get a permanent status if they stay here illegally for 10 years or more,” Malik said.

He said the agreement would reduce the suffering of the detainees and their families, The Dawn reports.

Talking to reporters, Johnson said those people who do not have a valid reason to stay in Britain must return to their native country.
