The partnership between Belgium and Pakistan looks ahead towards the future
In Islamabad, Pakistan and Belgium commemorate the significant milestone of the 75th anniversary of establishing diplomatic ties this year. The Joint Communique signifies the agreement between the two governments to establish respective diplomatic missions “to reinforce the bonds of friendship and shared interests.” Subsequent to this historic decision, diplomatic missions were inaugurated by both nations in 1948.
This marks a moment of pride, as the objectives set forth 75 years ago laid the groundwork for a robust and enduring friendship.
The positive trajectory of our relationship is rooted in interpersonal connections and frequent high-level engagements between leaders. The framework of Bilateral Political Consultations forms a solid basis for a diverse dialogue, offering opportunities to further strengthen this longstanding bilateral association. The substantial trade between both countries has consistently grown, benefiting both sides.
The depth of this bilateral relationship encompasses a sense of solidarity and assistance demonstrated during times of crisis, such as joint efforts in disaster management to alleviate natural disasters.
The partnership between Belgium and Pakistan is oriented toward the future, with both nations committed to collaborating on global platforms to address shared challenges, including sustainable development and climate change, as well as promoting core values like democracy and human rights, which fortify these ties.
As we celebrate 75 years of diplomatic relations, we reaffirm our dedication to collaborating towards shaping a better world for generations to come.
