During his two-day state visit to Pakistan, Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev arrived at Aiwan-e-Sadr for a meeting with Pakistani President Arif Alvi, who is also in Islamabad.
President Arif Alvi extended a cordial welcome to the visiting Uzbek President dignitary and convened a meeting to discuss issues of shared concern with him.
The President also organized a luncheon in honor of President Mirziyoyev and his delegation, which was attended by the entire delegation.
Earlier on Thursday, the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan met with Prime Minister Imran Khan to discuss ways to further strengthen and expand their strategic collaboration in all areas.
The two leaders also exchanged views on issues of global and regional importance, with a view to strengthening their cooperation in international forums such as the United Nations, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
During Uzbekistan’s chairmanship of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the President of the country announced his willingness to support Pakistan’s effort to establish a mechanism for poverty reduction during the duration of Uzbekistan’s leadership.
Political and diplomatic connections, commerce and investment, energy and connectivity, security and defense, and people-to-people relations are among the five primary pillars of Pakistan’s “Vision Central Asia,” according to the two presidents.
