The two sides reviewed the entire range of bilateral ties, including political-economic, trade, investment, renewable energy, green technology, and education.
Dr. Amin Rashid briefed the Danish official on measures being taken by Pakistan to contain the second wave of Covid-19 and the efforts being taken to safeguard lives and livelihoods.
Dr. Amin shared deep concern over the continuing military siege in Indian-occupied Jammu & Kashmir. He said that Indian action to alter Kashmir’s demographic structure is a clear violation of the pertinent UN Security Council resolutions and international law, including the 4th Geneva Convention.
Dr. Amin also shared concerns regarding the rise of Islamophobia.
He emphasized that the right to freedom of expression should be utilized with responsibility and should not be exploited for political gains by denigrating religion or religious figures, which hurt other communities’ sentiments.
The two sides also assessed the state of affairs in Afghanistan in the context of recent developments.
The Pakistani side reaffirmed that Islamabad would continue to support the Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace process as part of shared responsibility for durable peace and security in Afghanistan.
