ISLAMABAD Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has said that Pakistan gives great significance to Afghanistans unity, sovereignty and territorial integrity and remains committed for its reconstruction. We wish stability, peace and prosperity in Afghanistan, the Prime Minister said in a luncheon meeting hosted for Afghan President Hamid Karzai and his delegation at the Prime Ministers House. Prime Minister Gilani recalled President Karzais visit to Islamabad in March this year, which he said marked a distinct step forward in the two countries bilateral relations. He said that the two countries enjoy special bonds of friendship and brotherhood, with many binding affinities including common challenges, common aspirations and a common future and their interlinked destinies. We are meeting at a time when floods of an unprecedented scale have devastated Pakistan, Prime Minister said and called for the need for constant engagement of international community to face the challenge of flood in Pakistan that affected the lives and properties of 20 million people. Gilani said the challenges posed by the floods were not yet over, adding that reconstruction and rehabilitation would be a huge task. He said Pakistanis were deeply touched by the generous assistance extended to them by Afghanistan including one million dollars, four helicopters for relief operations, four tons of medicines and a medical team. The Prime Minister said both Pakistan and Afghanistan have suffered immensely from terrorism and extremism. We are resolutely determined to eradicate this menace from our region, he said. He said Pakistan fully supports President Karzais efforts to promote stability, peace and national reconciliation. He mentioned the successful holding of Afghan Peace Jirga and the Kabul Conference that were a testimony to his sincere efforts and important to usher in a new era. Gilani said that an Afghan-led process holds the only promise for a durable solution and it was for the people of Afghanistan themselves to decide their future. He said Pakistan would be happy to assist, if so required. He said under the democratic government in Pakistan, we have already turned a new leaf in our relations with Afghanistan. Now we need to impart a new momentum to our mutual cooperation and forge a win-win partnership for shared prosperity, he added. Gilani said despite resource constraints, Pakistan had contributed to Afghanistans reconstruction and remained committed to help the Afghan brethren all the way. Our unbreakable bonds of faith, shared history and geography impel us to join our efforts for peace and common development. This indeed is the vision that the two solemn Joint Declarations, signed between Pakistan and Afghanistan, seek to advance, he said. The Prime Minister mentioned the current bilateral trade around US $ 2 billion did not commensurate with the potential. He said efforts would be made to make joint efforts to increase the trade to $ 5 billion by 2015. He said the conclusion of negotiations on Afghanistan-Pakistan Transit Trade Agreement was also a matter of satisfaction. Ministers and Parliamentarians were also present during the luncheon meeting.
