According to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Ambassador of Morocco to Pakistan Mohamed Karmoune called on the army chief at GHQ in Rawalpindi today.
During the meeting, it said, matters of mutual interest, bilateral defence, security cooperation and regional security situation including Afghanistan were discussed.
The COAS said that Pakistan valued its relations with Morocco. “We earnestly look forward to enhance mutually beneficial multi-domain relations based on common interests,” he was quoted by the ISPR as saying.
The visiting dignitary, according to the military’s media wing, appreciated Pakistan’s role in the Afghan situation, efforts for regional stability and pledged to play his role for further improvement in diplomatic cooperation with Pakistan at all levels.
