ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Friday reiterated Pakistan’s firm commitment towards the GSP Plus preferential trade regime and effective implementation of the 27 related international conventions.
He said this while talking to the European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Vice President of the European Commission Josep Borrell on the side-lines of the Antalya Diplomacy Forum in Turkey.
The two leaders discussed entire spectrum of Pakistan-EU relations as well as global and regional situation including Afghan peace process and Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The foreign minister said that Pakistan-EU relations had further strengthened with the implementation of the Strategic Engagement Plan, signed in June 2019.
He emphasized that at a time of rising Islamophobia, racism and populism, the international community must show a common resolve against xenophobia, intolerance and incitement to violence on the basis of religion or belief.
The two leaders agreed to continue to maintain high level engagement to further strengthen Pakistan-EU relations.
