Pakistan and Kuwait have underscored the need for increasing cooperation in the fields of education, health, trade and economy
This was discussed at a meeting between President Dr. Arif Alvi and the visiting Foreign Minister of Kuwait, Sheikh Dr Ahmed Nasser Al-Mohammad Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, who called on him in Islamabad today (Friday).
Both sides discussed the existing level of cooperation and agreed to further expand bilateral ties for the mutual benefits of the two brotherly countries.
Talking to the Foreign Minister of Kuwait, the President offered that Pakistan could provide skilled labour and other professionals to Kuwait.
The President told the delegation that Pakistan could provide training to the military personnel of Kuwait in its military training institutes.
He said Pakistan’s geo-economic importance has increased due to China Pakistan Economic Corridor and Gwadar Port and Kuwait could benefit of the emerging economic opportunities by making investment in different projects under CPEC.
The President also highlighted the atrocities and human rights violations being committed by India in Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The Foreign Minister of Kuwait emphasized the need for further improving the relations between the two brotherly countries.
President Dr. Arif Alvi says Gwadar will emerge as an economic hub by providing the shortest route for China and Central Asian Republics to trade their goods.
In an interview with a private news channel, the President said after defeating terrorism successfully, Pakistan has shifted its emphasis from geo-politics to geo-economics.
He said, unlike the world, Pakistan is acting as a harbinger of peace and morality which will bring about a good future for the country.
Recounting the positive indicators, the President said the economy has improved, the construction sector growing and the dollar-rupee disparity has been controlled.
He said the houses for the low-income sector are being constructed and the country is moving ahead positively on the economic front.
Touching the Pak-India ties, he said the Kashmir dispute is the main hurdle in the normalization of the relations and instead of moving forward to resolve the dispute, India is issuing fake domiciles to around 2.5 million non-Kashmiris to change the demography of the disputed territory.
He said despite all, Pakistan wants a peaceful solution to the Kashmir dispute.
