Both Pakistan and Bosnia leaders have agreed to expand cooperation in different fields here on Wednesday (today).

The agreement came under consideration between Prime Minister Imran Khan and Chairman of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina Sefik Dzaferovic in Islamabad.

Later, in a joint press conference, the premier pointed out that the trade between the two countries currently stands at four point five million Euros which is nothing.

He said both the sides have decided to hold further deliberations to improve trade and cooperation in every field.

The PM also expressed his gratitude to the Bosnian President for his principled stance on Kashmir dispute.

He said India has been taken over by a fascist regime that is not only persecuting innocent people in occupied Jammu and Kashmir but also targeting its minorities especially the Muslims.

Furthermore, raising voice over increasing hate against Islam, Prime Minister Imran Khan said freedom of speech shouldn’t be used as a tool to hurt the sentiments of any religious community.

In his remarks on the occasion, the Chairman of the Presidency of Bosnia said both the countries have stood by each other in difficult times.

Dzaferovic called for a peaceful resolution of the Kashmir dispute in light of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolution.

He stressed protecting human rights in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

Dzaferovic said Pakistan and Bosnia enjoyed close ties which will be strengthened by his visit.

Sefik Dzaferovic strongly condemned Islamophobic incidents in the world. He said these are unacceptable and religious feelings of the Muslims should not be hurt.

He said there are great opportunities of cooperation between the two countries in diverse areas including military, agriculture and diplomacy.

Furthermore, Dzaferovic also invited Prime Minister Imran Khan to visit Bosnia.

On the other hand, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Bosnian leader Sefik Dzaferovic held a meeting.

Dzaferovic said Pakistan and Bosnia enjoyed close ties which will be strengthened by his visit.

The Foreign Minister said that the two countries have always stood by each other in difficult times.
