ISLAMABAD, Aug 14 (APP): Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau
Monday congratulated the people of Pakistan on Pakistan’s 70th Independence Day.
“Today, we join Pakistani communities in Canada and around the world
to celebrate seven decades of Pakistan’s independence,” said a message received here from Canada.
The two countries established a diplomatic relationship shortly after
Pakistan was declared a sovereign nation in 1947.
We continue to work together to advance shared priorities, including
governance and democracy, regional security, poverty reduction, polio
eradication, trade, defence, and the fight against climate change.
The people-to-people connections between Canada and Pakistan are older
Pakistani and Canadians continue to make major contributions to our
country, and help make Canada the prosperous, vibrant and open place it is today.
On behalf of the Government of Canada, Sophie and I offer our best
wishes to all those celebrating Pakistan’s Independence Day.”
