    ISLAMABAD: Pakistan will ask for compensation for losses it suffered for being the frontline state in the war on terror in terms of greater market access at the European Union Summit scheduled in April.

    Commerce ministry officials said that Pakistan would place three proposals for enhanced trade through facilitation and market access in the EU, sources told Dawn on Saturday.

    Pakistan’s delegation will be led by Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mehmood Qureshi at the summit and officials of commerce ministry will accompany him.

    According to presentations prepared by the commerce ministry, Pakistan being the frontline state in the war on terror has suffered over $45 billion worth of economic losses during the past few years.

    According to the first option, Islamabad will ask the European Union members to sign a free trade agreement with Pakistan.

    The second option calls upon the EU to accord Pakistan Generalised System of Preferences (GSP) ‘Plus’ status for enhanced trade market access.

    The third option says that EU leaders should consider immediate concession regime for Pakistan to compensate its trade losses by allowing import duty concessions in products of Pakistan’s exports interest.

    Compensation of trade losses incurred in war on terror


    The Indo-EU trade was worth some 75 Billion USD last year. The Pakistan-EU trade was around USD 8 Billion. Where is the competition ?

    We should also ask Pakistan for compensation for all the terror that it has perpetrated in India. Afghanistan should ask for compensation for all the genocides and barbarity by their Taliban proxies.

    Then the Bangladeshis! Pakistan will be broke if they are made to pay up.

    Wait, they already are. ;)

    They should compete with Afghanistan now.

    It is called Af-Pak for a region. They are in the same league.

    No point in even talking about India. We just have nothing in common and there is no question of any competition.

    Do Pakistanis think EU is over-flowing with money?

    War compensation! Pakistan must be out of its mind. We already give €300 million per year in development aid. The $45 billion in economic losses is their own fault for supporting the problem. Taliban wouldn't exist if ISI didn't prop them up for all those years.
