ISLAMABAD, March 30, 2012 (Frontier Star): Pakistan Ambassador to Indonesia Sanaullah said Pakistan is committed to ensure global peace and stability and the world community acknowledges his countys role in eliminating terrorism. He said, In the last 66 years of our existence, we have braved many trials and tribulations. But nothing hindered our working with the international community to promote global peace and stability. As a symbol of Pakistans positive contribution, the country was elected a member of the United Nation Security Council last year. Talking about Pak-Indonesia relations, he said, he hoped with the signing of the Preferential Trade Agreement (PTA) - Pakistans trade with Indonesia would gain momentum, say a press release. We wish to expand PTA into Free Trade Agreement (FTA). The country also strived to broaden its connectivity in trade, investment and people-to-people contacts with The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). We hope to achieve full dialogue partnership to actively participate in ASEAN programs, he said, Pakistan, because of its strategic location, can serve as a robust multiplier for ASEAN trade. Hundreds of dignitaries celebrated the 72nd anniversary of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan in Jakarta. Chief guest was Communications and Information Minister Tifatul Sembiring. Tifatul shared the sentiment, saying that Pakistan was an important country to work with. We want to advance our cooperation with Pakistan, especially in the agricultural sector. Also, considering that it is a Muslim country, there are relatively few barriers, said Tifatul. Former Indonesian President Madam Megawati Soekarnoputri addressed special message of greeting to the Ambassador on National Day of Pakistan.
