LAHORE – PML-N President Nawaz Sharif on Sunday said that people of Gilgit-Baltistan have proven their patriotism by unconditional annexation of the territory with Pakistan. Talking to PML-N Gilgit-Baltistan Organising Committee Secretary Akbar Taban at the Sharif family farmhouse at Raiwind, Nawaz said that it was a matter of pride for every Pakistani that people of the area, despite all difficulties, supported Pakistan and their patriotism was unwavering.

He expressed sympathies with families of those who were killed in the Kohistan tragedy, adding that if a chance was given to the PML-N, it would take all steps to improve the living standards of the people of Gilgit-Baltistan. He said that Gilgit-Baltistan was a beautiful area, which was a source of attraction for tourists.

By further development, it could be made a centre of tourism, Nawaz said, adding that this would not only help earn foreign exchange but also create jobs.
