The Pakistan High Commission in Nigeria has pledged to assist the federal government in the promotion of global peace and security.

The Commission made the pledge yesterday in a statement issued after its 50th Defence Day.

The statement which was signed by the Country’s Head of Cherry, Asim Ali Khan, noted that the Pakistan High Commissioner, Lt. Gen. Agha M. Farooq (rtd), said there were conflicts around the world which ‘are threats to world peace’, adding that Pakistan and Nigeria should intensify cooperation to boost their national defence and world peace. He thanked Nigeria and Nigerians “for their open-hearted support to Pakistan in general, and on Kashmir cause in particular at various international forums”.

The statement also urged President Muhammadu Buhari to lend his increasing global peaceful image to achieve “the freedom aspiration of the Kashmir people through a plebiscite under UN supervision”.
