Pakistan has seen momentous changes during its 71 years of nationhood and Australia has been a steadfast friend throughout this period.
“We will continue to stand with the people of Pakistan in their efforts to build a strong, stable, prosperous and democratic country,” said Australia’s High Commissioner Margaret Adamson in a statement marking Pakistan’s Independence Day.
She further added: “I congratulate the people and government of Pakistan on the occasion of Pakistan Independence Day. I am confident our partnerships in education, trade, development and our sporting and cultural ties will only continue to strengthen.”
Adamson said she was grateful for the contribution made to Australia by Pakistani diaspora who play an integral role in vibrant multicultural society and in fostering people-to-people links between the two countries.
