Pakistan and Bangladesh to promote relations for mutual benefit

DHAKA: Bangladesh’s and Pakistan’s leaders are committed to strengthening ties, including through high-level visits.

According to Pakistan’s envoy, the visit of Bangladesh’s prime minister will provide relations a boost.

Imran Ahmed Siddiqui, Pakistan’s High Commissioner in Bangladesh, told the foreign Agency in an exclusive interview that both nations’ leaders have already invited each other and that both sides need to work quickly to materialize exchanges.

Siddiqui has met President Abdul Hamid, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Foreign Minister A. K. Abdul Momen, and other Cabinet ministers and dignitaries, including business leaders, since his official visit to Bangladesh in February last year.

On July 5, industry executives and experts discussed “Pakistan-Bangladesh Economic Relations: Future of Cooperation,” highlighting the promise of mutual advantages in agriculture, readymade garments, and other industries.

During the interview, Siddiqui claimed he discussed the scope of trade and cooperation between Dhaka and Islamabad in detail.

“There exists tremendous potential for both sides to cooperate in a mutually beneficial manner in the areas of trade and investment, culture, arts and literature, tourism, etcetera,” he said.

Referring to his regular interactions with members of the trade and industry community, academics, and members of civil society, he said he noticed “a strong willingness to take bilateral ties of both states forward.”
