The programme began with the playing of the national anthems of both countries by an ensemble and was followed a cake-cutting ceremony.
The information minister congratulated the ambassador on the historic day of Indonesia. The ambassador reciprocated the sentiments expressed by the minister and extended his warmest greetings to the government and people of Pakistan on the 64th Independence Day of the country celebrated recently on August 14.
The variety of food served during the event had variations to be found both in Pakistan and Indonesia. Pakistan and Indonesia share cordial ties, as the two are Muslim states and important members of ASEAN.
