MOST FAVOURED NATION STATUS TO PAKISTAN

1940. SHRI KIRANMAY NANDA:

Will the Minister of EXTERNAL AFFAIRS be pleased to state:

(a) whether it is a fact that Prime Minister made a statement about reviewing of Most Favoured Nation status of Pakistan, after Uri attack;

(b) if so, whether any progress has been made by Government in this regards; and

(c) if not, the details of the reasons for not being able to take any action, so far?

ANSWER
THE MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF EXTERNAL AFFAIRS
(SHRI M. J. AKBAR)

(a) No.

(b) Does not arise.

(c) Presently, no proposal to review Most Favoured Nation status to Pakistan is under consideration. India has accorded Most Favoured Nation Status to all WTO members, including Pakistan, in accordance with provisions of the Article 1 of General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, 1994. It is unfortunate that Pakistan has not fulfilled its international obligations in this regard, so far.
