My Report from Cox's Bazar Refugee Camp in Bangladesh, where the Rohingya community has taken refuge!
Kashmir Solidarity Day. The use of pellet guns against children in Kashmir and other human rights violations must end. Kashmiris cannot wait another 70 years for self-determination.
The only prediction I'll make for 2018: it's not going to be boring.
It's been a really busy January in the European Parliament. One Strasbourg session and plenty of committee meetings, but also some important additional things too:
It was my distinct pleasure to welcome Pakistan Minister for Defense, Engr. Khurram Dastgir Khan and former Speaker Dr. Fehmida Mirza to dinner last night.
