ISLAMABAD: The ambassador of Tunisia to Pakistan, Adel Elarbi, called on National Security Adviser Lt. General (r) Nasser Khan Janjua Thursday morning.
The envoy said that Tunisia attached great importance to Pakistan and expressed a strong desire to boost bilateral relations by extending cooperation in multiple areas including defence, economics and social sectors.
He also conveyed that the Tunisian government is keen to explore the possibilities of enhancing cooperation between both the countries in the field of security, particularly counter-terrorism. “We want to learn from Pakistan the strategy to win against terrorism and integration of people in society” he added.
The envoy invited the business community of Pakistan and said that because of its location, Tunisia can be helpful for Pakistan in providing an easy access to European and African countries. “We have a lot of scope to move forward and it is time to translate our different ideas of cooperation into tangible projects,” the envoy said.
The NSA said Tunisia is a brotherly Muslim country and Pakistan is also keen to expand cooperation with Tunisia. Strong relations with Tunisia would be instrumental for maintaining good relations with other African countries as well. NSA assured the Ambassador that Pakistan is ever ready to support Tunisia in every field and both the countries must belong to each other in a manner better than ever before.
