Pakistanâ€™s High Commissioner to Sri Lanka, Dr. Shahid Ahmad Hashmat, speaking at a reception hosted in Colombo Friday (March 30) to mark Pakistan National Day, said that Sri Lanka and Pakistan enjoy a strong relationship.
Dr. Shahid Ahmad Hashmat said that Pakistan is an â€œall weather and time tested friendâ€ of Sri Lanka and the friendship has grown from strength to strength.
The High Commissioner said that the relationship between both countries is marked by mutual respect and not just mutual interests.
â€œMutual respect between Pakistan and Sri Lanka is the main pillar of this relationship,â€ he said.
