Outgoing Sudanese ambassador pays farewell call on President Arif Alvi

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The outgoing Ambassador of Sudan Tageldin Elhadi Eltahir paid a farewell call on President Dr Arif Alvi at the Aiwan-e-Sadr in Islamabad on Monday.

Dr Arif Alvi said that Pakistan values its friendship with Sudan and holds the Country in high esteem. He said that Pakistan keenly desires to enhance its existing relations with Sudan in all domains particularly collaboration in trade, defence and economic matters.

Apprising the outgoing envoy about the situation in Indian Occupied Kashmir, the president said that the unilateral and illegal actions taken by the fascist Indian government violating the human rights of the people of Kashmir are a continuation of BJP’s hostile and restrictive attitude towards all its minorities as reflected in a 113 day long clamp-down in Kashmir,

President Arif Alvi urged the International Community to persuade India to abide by its responsibility to uphold the basic human rights of all its citizens.
