Pakistan's government will seek a vote in parliament on Tuesday to expel the French ambassador after violent anti-France protests by Islamists, the interior minister said.
The expulsion is one of the main four demands of the a far-right Islamist Tehrik-e-Labaik Pakistan (TLP) group, that has been protesting for over a week over cartoons depicting Prophet Mohammad.
Pakistan on Monday opened talks with the group, despite it having been banned on 15th April
"After long negotiations with TLP, this has been agreed that we will table a resolution in parliament today to expel French ambassador," said the interior minister, Sheikh Rashid Ahmad in a video recorded statement.
