Qureshi urges for strengthening economic ties between Pakistan, Japan
ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Tuesday called for further strengthening of economic ties between Pakistan and Japan.
This he said while talking to Japanese Ambassador Kuninori Matsuda, who called on him in Islamabad, here today.
Calling Japan a basic economic partner of Pakistan, Qureshi said Japan has been supporting Pakistan in its progress and development in various fields, and Pakistan gives high value to its relations with Japan.
Two sides discussed bilateral relations and matters pertaining to mutual interest, including important regional and global issues and expressed satisfaction over improving bilateral relations.
Meeting also exchanged views about expected visit of the foreign minister to Japan, which was canceled earlier due to increasing escalation with India following the Pulwama attack.
The Japanese ambassador gave assurance of his government’s full cooperation on matters of mutual interest between both the countries.
