Islamabad, July 19(ANI): British Minister and British Conservative Party Chairperson, Sayeeda Warsi, has said that she would never join politics in Pakistan.

"I am British and wish Pakistan well, but politics of this country is not my cup of tea. There is no dearth of talent and potential in Pakistan and I would like to continue to be the part of mother of democracy's politics that has given me the stature that I could not think of in any other society," The News quoted Warsi, as saying.

"I am the daughter of the East but proud of my society for which I am working," she added.

She also urged the leaders of the Pakistan People's Party (PPP), the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the PML-Quaid to forge unity among their ranks to ensure a prosperous Pakistan.

While replying to a question about the student visa controversy, she said that unfortunately some students were travelling to the UK on fake university documents, which is illegal.

"The British government is planning to launch a crackdown against such fake educational institutions. The problem has to be sorted out and it has no other aspect," Warsi said.

The minister further said that she had planned to serve in British politics for a specific period of time, but she would like to keep the length of it close to her.

"It would be in years and not decades," she added. (ANI)
