Asked if the Cabinet had discussed the position the Prime Minister would be taking at CHOGM, particularly over Zimbabwe and Pakistan, the PMS replied that this was not discussed at Cabinet this morning, but obviously there had been ongoing discussions in advance of CHOGM. Regarding developments in Pakistan, the Government’s position remained the same, that we expect a restoration of constitutional order as soon as possible in order for there to be free and fair elections.

Asked if we would support the suspension of Pakistan from the Commonwealth, the PMS replied that we should wait until we get to such a position arises before speculating on that. But the Government had already welcomed action taken by the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group (CMAG), and the statement that they issued earlier this month.

Asked if this statement was discussed at Cabinet, the PMS replied that the statement was discussed and agreed at a meeting on 12th November that was attended by government ministers. Pakistan was something that was being discussed widely amongst relevant government ministers.
