Canada has long been a strong ally in fight to eradicate polio: minister

Islamabad, February 16, 2015 (PPI-OT): The Honourable Christian Paradis, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie, today issued the following statement:

“Humanitarian, development and security personnel should not have to fear for their lives as they provide critical assistance to the Pakistani people. There is no possible justification for such violence against health workers and those who protect them.
