On the 42nd National Day of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), its acting consul-general in Karachi Bakhteet Ateeq al Romaith shared his views on the relations between Pakistan and UAE on Sunday.

“I appreciate Pakistan’s contribution to the evolution of key institutions in the Emirates, such as the armed forces, police, health and education, and we have reciprocated in the same friendly manner,” he said. “As we celebrate this national day, I would like us to celebrate the successes of the deep-rooted ties that bind us, and the endless opportunities that will continue to keep us connected.”

The UAE has emerged as one of Pakistan’s major economic and trading partners, he said. “The bilateral trade volume between our countries has exceeded from $7.6 billion in 2012 to $10 billion this year.”

“The UAE-Pakistan relationship is not just limited to trade and investment, there is people-to-people contact and both countries share a cultural similarity like no other,” he said.

    Pakistan is a Defeated and mega-Surrendered country. From Pakistan Army, UAE Armed forces can only learn how to lose a war and surrender unconditionally.

    December is the ‘month of Defeat and Surrender’ for Pakistan.

    Dubai is awesome. We should build a place like that here in Pakistan. Though it would take massive capital, which are unfortunately in the pockets of corrupt people. But we do have the intellect and labour to do it.Recommend
