ISLAMABAD – Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari yesterday invited German investment in Pakistan

In a wide-ranging meeting with German counterpart Annalena Baerbock here at the Foreign Office, the FM appreciated German companies doing business in Pakistan.

He said more German companies can take advantage of the country’s business friendly policies.

During the delegation-level talks, the two sides had an extensive exchange of views on various aspects of bilateral relations with a special focus on enhancing cooperation in the fields of trade and investment, climate change, and renewable energy.

Foreign Minister Bilawal hoped that bilateral relations would be strengthened further through regular high-level exchanges, which had acquired a steady momentum in recent years.

In the regional context, he stressed the need for the international community to come together to address the dire humanitarian situation in Afghanistan.

The foreign minister added that the release of Afghan financial assets was important to help stabilise the Afghan economy. He also maintained that Pakistan would continue to provide humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan.

German Foreign Minister Baerbock thanked Pakistan for its role in facilitating the evacuation of foreign nationals and others from Afghanistan.

While discussing the situation in Ukraine, Foreign Minister Bilawal shared Pakistan’s concern over the continuation of military conflict.

Reiterating Pakistan’s principled position, he said Pakistan believed that a solution must be found through dialogue and diplomacy.

The foreign minister added that ramifications of this conflict were being felt far beyond the European Continent, as far as in Pakistan, due to rising fuel and food prices.

He added that in solidarity with the people of Ukraine, and despite our own economic challenges, Pakistan had sent relief goods and humanitarian aid for the affected Ukrainian people.

The foreign minister also drew attention of his German counterpart to the serious human rights violations in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), the rising tide of Islamophobia across India, also manifested in the recent repugnant remarks by two BJP officials towards the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him), and risks posed by these developments to peace and stability.
