Mamnoon Hussain, President of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan in his message said that 23rd March is an important landmark in the history of our nation.

He said that cooperation for global peace is the base of the country's foreign policy, and that Pakistan extends a hand of cooperation to regional countries but it would be mistake if the gesture was taken as as sign of weakness.

Islamabad-Pakistan President Mamnoon Hussain Friday reminded India to peacefully resolve the long-standing issue of Kashmir.

Ambassador highlighted the importance of Pakistan-China friendship and said that both countries share the dream of development, peace and security in the region.

Mamnoon also said that the global scenario has changed, and now countries could not be coerced to tow the line of one particular country.

During his address at the event, Mahmood said, "Pakistan desired peaceful and good-neighbourly relations with India on the basis of sovereign equality and mutual respect".

He said that Pakistan had been playing a vital role for the global peace and rendering commendable services from the United Nations platform for it.
