Message from the Ambassador
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!
