ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has reaffirmed Pakistan’s desire to further strengthen political and economic partnership with Qatar.

In a telephone conversation with the Amir of the State of Qatar, His Highness Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani, the prime minister appreciated Qatar’s assistance to Pakistan during the pandemic, in particular, the care afforded to more than 200,000 Pakistani expatriates working for the progress and development of the two countries.

The two leaders exchanged views on the evolving situation in Afghanistan. The prime minister underscored that a peaceful and stable Afghanistan was in vital interest of Pakistan and the region.

He underlined that after 40 years of conflict and instability, there was an opportunity to establish lasting peace in Afghanistan.

Prime Minister Imran Khan emphasized that the world community must remain positively engaged and support the Afghan people at this crucial juncture, both economically and to help rebuild the country.

This, he stressed, was crucial to avert humanitarian and refugee crises in the country. The two leaders agreed to remain in close contact on bilateral matters, as well as regional and international issues of mutual interests.
