Islamabad, September 07, 2022 (PPI-OT):Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif held telephonic conversation with His Excellency, Ilham Heydar Aliyev, President of Azerbaijan, today. During the call, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif expressed gratitude for the generous assistance extended by Azerbaijan to the flood affected people of Pakistan.
Acknowledging the donation of US$ 2 Million from Azerbaijan, the Prime Minister shared that Pakistan had been battling one of the most severe cycles of torrential monsoon weather, which had resulted in loss of lives, livelihood and extensive damage to the infrastructure.
As a result, the delivery of assistance and relocation of flood affected people was severely limited. The Prime Minister reaffirmed his strong resolve to further deepen and broaden its cooperation with Azerbaijan in diverse areas including energy cooperation.
Pakistan and Azerbaijan support each other at international fora such as UN, OIC and ECO. Azerbaijan is an important member of OIC Contact Group on Jammu and Kashmir. The two peoples are linked by common faith, cultural affinities and rich historical ties.
