ISLAMABAD - Pakistan-EU relations were discussed Thursday between Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Hina Rabbani Khar and the visiting EU Commissioner for Development Andris Piebalgs. The minister appreciated EUs support to the democratic process in Pakistan. She also conveyed Pakistans gratitude for humanitarian assistance received from the EU following the devastating floods in Pakistan last year. Apprising the development commissioner about governments efforts aimed at brining about macro-economic stability in the country, the minister of state underscored that Pakistan had been facing multiple challenges. Terrorism had afflicted massive losses to the national economy. It was, therefore, important on the part of the friends around the world, especially the European Union, to extend to Pakistan their all-out support.
