IS­LAM­ABAD: Pak­istan at­taches great im­por­tance to its re­la­tions with broth­erly coun­try Morocco, and these re­la­tions are char­ac­ter­ized by iden­tity of views on re­gional and global is­sues.

This was stated by Chair­man Se­nate, Fa­rooq H. Naek while talk­ing to the Am­bas­sador of king­dom of Morocco, Mo­ham­mad Rida El Fassi who called on him here Tues­day.

The chair­man said Morocco held in high es­teem by the peo­ple of Pak­istan and they ap­pre­ci­ate the rapid progress Morocco has made in all spheres of its na­tional life, par­tic­u­larly in im­prov­ing the econ­omy, in­fra­struc­ture and so­cial sec­tor un­der the able and saga­cious lead­er­ship of His Majesty King Mo­ham­mad VI.

The Chair­man ob­served that bi­lat­eral trade be­tween Pak­istan and Morocco did not re­flect the close­ness of the re­la­tions be­tween the two coun­tries and hoped that the two coun­tries will be able to in­crease bi­lat­eral eco­nomic and com­mer­cial co­op­er­a­tion through the en­hanced ex­change of trade and busi­ness del­e­ga­tions.

Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, the Chair­man said the strong bonds of friend­ship and broth­er­hood be­tween the two Mus­lim coun­tries must be man­i­fested through closer par­lia­men­tary con­tacts.

He un­der­lined the need of fre­quent par­lia­men­tary ex­changes be­tween Pak­istan and Morocco for their mu­tual ad­van­tage.

Am­bas­sador Fassi thanked the Chair­man Se­nate for re­ceiv­ing him at the Par­lia­ment house and as­sured him all pos­si­ble co­op­er­a­tion in fur­ther strength­en­ing the cor­dial re­la­tions be­tween the two broth­erly coun­tries.

The Am­bas­sador also ex­tended an in­vi­ta­tion to the chair­man Se­nate from Dr Mo­ham­mad Cheikh Bi­ad­hillah, Pres­i­dent of the House of Councillor, King­dom of Morocco to visit Morocco.

Pak­istan, Syria en­joy good re­la­tions: Pak­istan and Syria have ex­em­plary broth­erly re­la­tions which are ex­pand­ing with ev­ery pass­ing day, Syr­ian am­bas­sador to Pak­istan Dr Ali Mehra said.

Talk­ing to APP, he said Pak­istan is an ef­fec­tive mem­ber of Or­ga­ni­za­tion of Is­lamic Con­fer­ence (OIC) and an im­por­tant coun­try of the re­gion which has great his­tory, civ­i­liza­tion, lit­er­a­ture and her­itage.

Dr. Mehra said ties of Pak­istan and Syria in fields of trade, econ­omy, po­lit­i­cal and cul­ture are five decades old and both gov­ern­ments are mak­ing ef­forts to pro­mote co­op­er­a­tion in var­i­ous walks of life. -App
