Adviser to the PM on Parliamentary Affairs Babar Awan said on Monday he hopes that US president-elect Joe Biden will make Dr Aafia Siddiqui’s return possible,
Babar Awan said this in a meeting with Dr. Aafia’s sister Fauzia Siddiqui. Awan updated Dr Aafia’s sister on the progress made so far in the case.
He said addressing the problems of Pakistanis abroad is one of the PTI government’s top priorities.
“The government is working for the return of Pakistanis imprisoned in different countries,” Awan said.
He said the foreign ministry will take up the release of Dr Aafia in the Senate.
Last month, Awan had informed the Senate that Dr Aafia had signed a clemency petition.
