Pakistan to deepen bilateral relations with Egypt: FM Qureshi

Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi went on an official visit to Egypt where he agreed to deepen bilateral relations with the government of Egypt. He called on President of Egypt, Abdel Fattah Al Sisi, and held delegation-level talks with the Egyptian Foreign Minister, Sameh Shoukry, besides holding a meeting with Ahmed Aboul Gheit, Secretary-General of the League of Arab States.

In his meeting with the Egyptian President, the Foreign Minister conveyed the warm greetings of the Prime Minister of Pakistan and invited him to visit Pakistan on behalf of President Arif Alvi. Foreign Minister Qureshi, while referring to the shared vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan and President Sisi, emphasized the importance of increased high-level visits and economic engagement for mutually beneficial partnerships.

President Sisi hoped that the two countries could play an important role in addressing the challenges faced by Muslim Ummah.

During the delegation-level talks with his Egyptian counterpart, the Foreign Ministers agreed to deepen bilateral relations by holding soon the next sessions of the Bilateral Political Consultations as well as the Joint Ministerial Commission. Foreign Minister Qureshi invited his counterpart to visit Pakistan at his earliest convenience. Foreign Minister Shoukry promised to visit Pakistan as soon as possible.

The Foreign Minister briefed his interlocutor about the humanitarian crisis being faced by the Kashmiri people in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) and stressed the need for the international community to take action against the egregious human rights violations being committed against the innocent Kashmiri people.

The Foreign Minister also visited the Arab League Headquarters and met Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit. He appreciated Arab League’s unwavering commitment to the Palestinian cause.

Besides official meetings, the Foreign Minister also interacted with the leading Egyptian businessmen, local media, and the Pakistani community.

Pakistan and Egypt enjoy close fraternal relations. The visit of the Foreign Minister would serve as a stepping stone for a stronger and broader partnership between the two brotherly countries.
