Pakistan Desires To Further Expand Its Ties With Indonesia: President Alvi

ISLAMABAD: President Dr. Arif Alvi says the isolation of Muslims by the Indian government is a matter of grave concern and it is the responsibility of the world to hold India accountable for the repressive actions against minority groups.

This was expressed by the president while talking to outgoing Ambassador of Indonesia, Iwan Suyudhie Amri, who paid a farewell call on him, at Aiwan-e-Sadr, in Islamabad on Tuesday.

He said that India was increasingly becoming intolerant to Muslims, who are being persecuted and targeted persistently.

The President said Pakistan highly valued its ties with Indonesia, and wanted to further expand bilateral relations in areas of trade, economy and defence.

He thanked the government of Indonesia for very ably steering the discussion in the United Nations Security Council on Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

Both sides emphasized the need to further expand bilateral relations in the fields of defence and trade.
