Pakistan's foreign ministry on Friday slammed its suspension from the Commonwealth as "unreasonable and unjustified" and said it would review future cooperation with the organisation.
The government "deeply regrets" the step which "does not take into account the objective conditions prevailing in Pakistan," it said in a first reaction to the suspension.
"Therefore, the CMAG decision is unreasonable and unjustified," it added, referring to the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group. "Pakistan will review its association and further cooperation with the organisation."
