Islamabad—Chairman Senate, Senator Raza Rabbani Saturday said unfortunately western countries are trying to destabilize democratic grounds in Asia and it is high time to work collectively to be a vibrant power internationally.
He said, “Unity is diversity”, so Asian nations should work for safeguarding democratic values, economic and natural resources for strengthening their power.

Raza Rabbani said struggle brave people of Palestine need to be acknowledged who are fighting fearlessly against Zyonism.
Silence of international world on atrocities in Palestine is a question mark on the wisdom of western wisdom, he said.
