Ghu­lam Dast­gir Am­bas­sador of Pak­istan to Kuwait

It gives me great plea­sure to ex­tend warm­est fe­lic­i­ta­tions to all Pak­ista­nis liv­ing in Kuwait, within Pak­istan and else­where in the world, on the aus­pi­cious oc­ca­sion of the 71st In­de­pen­dence Day of Pak­istan. While thank­ing Al­lah Almighty for His in­fi­nite fa­vors in the shape of cit­i­zen­ship of a free na­tion, with our des­tiny in our own hands, let us humbly pray for the unity, se­cu­rity, progress and pros­per­ity of Pak­istan.

14 Au­gust 1947 marked the suc­cess­ful cul­mi­na­tion of a heroic strug­gle of the Mus­lims of the sub-con­ti­nent for their right to have a sep­a­rate home­land of their own. While cel­e­brat­ing the 71st In­de­pen­dence Day of Pak­istan, it gives us great sat­is­fac­tion that, by the grace of Almighty Al­lah, Pak­istan has emerged vic­to­ri­ous and stronger out of the many chal­lenges that it faced for decades.

To­day, peace and sta­bil­ity is re­turn­ing to Pak­istan thanks to the heroic sac­ri­fices made by our brave armed forces and the peo­ple of Pak­istan. Our econ­omy is grow­ing. The trans­for­ma­tional China-Pak­istan Eco­nomic Cor­ri­dor con­tin­ues to lead the way in so­cio-eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment. On the in­ter­na­tional front, Pak­istan con­tin­ues to play an im­por­tant role, in line with the Gov­ern­ment’s vi­sion of “peace­ful neighborhood”.

On the bi­lat­eral side, the lead­er­ship of the two broth­erly coun­tries of Pak­istan and Kuwait are de­ter­mined to con­vert the huge reser­voir of mu­tual good­will into a strong part­ner­ship through ex­pand­ing co­op­er­a­tion in di­verse fields, no­tably trade, en­ergy and in­vest­ment. The visit of the Prime Min­is­ter of Pak­istan to Kuwait in March this year will help en­hance bi­lat­eral co­op­er­a­tion in di­verse fields.

Over­seas Pak­ista­nis, in­clud­ing the pa­tri­otic Pak­istani com­mu­nity in Kuwait, have to con­tinue to play an im­por­tant role in this en­deavor. Ev­ery one of them has to do their best to pro­mote Pak­istan’s in­ter­ests in ev­ery way pos­si­ble, from pro­ject­ing a good im­age of Pak­istan to mo­bi­liz­ing trade and in­vest­ment. Let us re­new our pledge to­day that we would ded­i­cate our en­er­gies to serv­ing Pak­istan and lead it to a high level of de­vel­op­ment and pros­per­ity as en­vi­sioned by our found­ing fa­thers. Thank You!
