“Germany and Pakistan have gone through strife regarding the situations in our respective countries, but together we must learn to grow together, and together we must share our experiences and learn from them”

LAHORE
The German ambassador, on Wednesday, highlighted the need for Germany and Pakistan to grow together, in a gathering at a local hotel, organized by the German embassy, commemorating the unification of Germany.
The Honorary Consul Anees ur Rehman introduced the significance of the program with a speech which stressed on the spirit that the people of Germany had among themselves and which in turn catalyzed the process of unification. He emphasised that Germans, despite countless problems including the disapproval of the four powers, walked to unification without shedding a single drop of blood.
Anees said, “Germans had realized the power of unity and it is about time that, learning from Germany, Pakistan also realizes the power”
Dr Michael Koch, the German ambassador said, “I am honoured by the acknowledgment given to me this evening and I have only one more thing to say, and that is, that Germany and Pakistan have gone through similar experiences. We have each gone through strife regarding the situations in our respective countries, but together we must learn to grow together, and together we must share our experiences and learn from them.”
