ISLAMABAD: Chairman Senate Muhammad Sadiq Sanjrani on Wednesday said Pakistan had envisaged renewed ‘Engage Africa Policy’ to boost its relations with all African countries by increasing its diplomatic missions in the countries.
“The exchange of parliamentary delegations will steer the agenda for enhanced economic, political and defence cooperation not only between the Pakistan and Djibouti but also with other African countries,” Sadiq Sanjrani said in a meeting with Mohamed Ali Houmed Acting Chairman African Union Parliament and President Djibouti National Parliament in Islamabad.
He expressed the hope that the visit would bolster existing foundation of strong brotherly ties between Pakistan and Djibouti and open new vistas of diplomatic, parliamentary and economic cooperation with the African region.
“Pakistan enjoys great respect among the comity of African nations because of its constructive role as an important player of ‘UN Peacekeeping Operations’ in Africa,” he said.
The chairman Senate relayed the delegation regarding the late volatile situation in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir following the unconstitutional, illegal and unilateral actions of India to alter its disputed status in contravention of the international laws and United Nations Security Council resolutions which has become a grave humanitarian crisis.
