Pakistan, Arab nations must come closer: Nawaz


Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Nawaz Sharif has stressed for further strengthening the existing good ties between Pakistan and the Arab world.

Nawaz said this on Friday while talking with ambassadors of the Arab countries in a meeting held at a Saudi Arabian envoy’s residence.

He said constitutional transition of the government was taking place for the first time in Pakistan.

Nawaz shared the manifesto of the party and said the country was facing challenges of rising inflation, unemployment, depleting energy resources and an alarming deterioration in the law and order situation.

“These enormous problems call for a strong and stable government, which is committed to good governance and rule of law,” Nawaz apprised the Arab ambassadors. He said only an experienced and competent leadership could formulate and implement a well thought-out policy.

The ambassador of Bahrain for Pakistan thanked the PML-N president for taking time out to meet them. He said the Arab countries attached great importance to the relation with Pakistan.

Nawaz was accompanied by Senator Ishaq Dar and former ambassador Tariq Fatemi.
