75th Anniversary of diplomatic relations between Pakistan and Belgium


Islamabad, 16 November 2023 (TDI): Pakistan and Belgium celebrate the historic landmark of the 75th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations this year. The Joint Communique, issued on November 26, 1947, encapsulates the decision of the two governments to accept respective diplomatic missions “to strengthen the bonds of friendship and mutual interest.”

Following the historic decision, the two countries opened diplomatic missions in 1948.

It is a proud moment for both, as the goals outlined 75 years ago paved the way for a strong bond of friendship.

The upward trajectory of our relations is deeply embedded in people-to-people linkages and frequent high-level contacts at the leadership level.

The institution of Bilateral Political Consultation provides a strong foundation for a multifaceted dialogue that holds the potential to deepen this longstanding bilateral relationship. The robust trade between the countries has witnessed continuous growth to mutual benefit.

As we celebrate 75 years of diplomatic relations, we reiterate our commitment to work together towards shaping a better world for future generations.
