Pakistan President Dr Arif Alvi wants to improve commercial and cultural relations with Bangladesh.
Pakistan highly values its ties with Bangladesh and wants to further expand cooperation by using the existing bilateral mechanisms, including Political Consultations at Foreign Secretary Level and Joint Economic Commission, the president said.
He made the remarks while talking to the Pakistan’s High Commissioner to Bangladesh, Imran Ahmed Siddiqui, who called on him at Aiwan-e-Sadr, the presidential palace, in Islamabad yesterday (Tuesday), according to a press statement from the Pakistan High Commission.
The statement comes when Bangladesh celebrates 50 years of independence from the oppression of Pakistan through a brutal war in 1971.
The Pakistan President asked the High Commissioner to work for improving bilateral ties between the two countries.
He underscored the need to enhance commercial relations, business-to-business cooperation and people-to-people contacts for the mutual benefit of the two countries.
He urged the need to enhance bilateral cultural and political exchanges as well as increase cooperation in the field of sports to further cement cooperation between the two sides.
