President Dr. Arif Alvi has urged the Pakistani high commissioners and ambassadors to accurately highlight the Kashmir dispute and the Indian oppression.
He was speaking to Ambassador designate to Hungary Muhammad Aejaz who called him in Islamabad on Tuesday.
The President said Pakistan will never approve the blatant human rights violation in occupied Kashmir at the hands of the fascist Indian regime and will always stand by the Kashmir people.
Arif Alvi said Pakistan values its relations with Hungary and was keen to further enhance these relations both the bilateral level as well as in the context of EU.
However, he said that the current volume of bilateral trade between the two countries does not live up to its true potential.
Therefore, there was a strong need to diversify the bilateral trade.
He further explained that Pakistan offered a range of opportunities for investment, especially in energy, agriculture and food processing, and pharmaceuticals. Hence the Ambassador-designate must make due efforts to promote Pakistan’s economic and commercial interests in Hungary and utilize existing institutional mechanisms.
Referring to the government’s efforts towards the promotion and development of tourism and archaeological heritage of Pakistan, he directed the ambassador-designate to encourage exchange of tourist and people-to-people contacts between the two sides.
He also appreciated Hungarian government’s initiative of offering 200 scholarships to Pakistani students.
He highlighted that the ambassador must keep a close liaison with the Pakistani community so that issues can be resolved promptly.
