ISLAMABAD: Pakistan and Egypt have agreed to work together on a number of proposals in the areas of education, culture, housing, transportation, communication and remote sensing, besides cooperation between Gwadar and Suez ports authorities.

The bilateral ties were discussed in the 9th round of Pakistan-Egypt Annual Bilateral Consultations (ABC) held at the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Cairo on Wednesday (March 24).

Special Secretary (Middle East), Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Pakistan Dr Khalid Hussain Memon and Assistant Foreign Minister for Asian Affairs of Egyptian Foreign Ministry Ambassador Tarek El-Wassimy led their respective delegations, a Foreign Office press release said.

The two sides also agreed to continue close cooperation in the multilateral organizations, in particular the United Nations and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). The delegations also exchanged views on regional and international developments.

The special secretary apprised his counterpart about the human rights situation in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), and underscored the importance of peaceful resolution of the Jammu & Kashmir dispute in accordance with relevant UN Security Council resolutions.

Earlier in the day, the Special Secretary (Middle East) met Vice Foreign Minister Ambassador Hamdi Sanad Loza and handed over a letter from Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi, addressed to his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry.
