Pakistan summons Dutch ambassador

Pakistan summoned The Netherlands’ ambassador on Wednesday to raise concerns about Geert Wilders’ anti-Koran film, various news agencies reported on Wednesday.

News agency ANP quoted a Pakistan foreign ministry spokesman as saying the film had nothing to do with the right to freedom of expression.
Pakistan has also raised this issue in Brussels, the Vatican and The Hague, news agencies said. The Organisation of Islamic Conference to be held in Senegal later this month will also discuss the matter.
