Pakistan and Tunisia have agreed to translate the spirit of fraternity and warmth into tangible cooperation in the political and economic spheres. This was deliberated in a meeting between Chairman Senate Muhammad Sadiq Sanjrani and the Tunisian Ambassador Adel Elarbi here at Parliament House on Monday.
Chairman Senate observed that Pak-Tunisian ties are embedded in history, culture, traditions and common faith and both sides share identical views on regional and international issues of mutual concern. The Chairman Senate emphasized the need for more high level visits and people to people contacts as cooperation in political, economic and cultural areas have remained short of potential.
Chairman Senate underscored the need for promotion and strengthening of parliamentary cooperation between Pakistan and Tunisia with primary focus on inter-parliamentary engagements and capacity building programs. “Both the Parliaments should learn from each other experiences and best parliamentary practices for which joint capacity building program could be arranged for MPs as well as parliamentary staff. Chairman Senate also underscored the need for activation of parliamentary friendship groups in respective parliaments.
Tunisian ambassador tanked Chairman Senate for the welcoming remarks and said that Pakistan and Tunisia can benefit a lot by exploring new avenues for cooperation. He said that Tunisia also considered Pakistan an important country and desires to further expand the bilateral relations in various sectors.
