The diplomatic relations between Pakistan and Uruguay are marked with shared interests, cooperation, and mutual assistance. Pakistan is accredited to Uruguay by its Argentine embassy, whereas, Uruguay is accredited to Pakistan by its Iranian embassy.
Regarding the multilateral relationship, both states cooperate on international forums, particularly through the United Nations (UN). Pakistan and Uruguay are making continuous efforts to achieve the UN sustainable development goals as well.
Both states are also collaborating in the field of medicine. For instance, Pakistani doctors are earning fame for their country while living in Montevideo, given their professional expertise and selfless service to the Uruguayan society.
However, Pakistan’s trade with Uruguay is relatively small as compared to other markets of South America. Islamabad’s major export products include carpets, textiles, sports goods, surgical instruments, and leather products. On the other hand, Montevideo exports edible products such as perfumes, oils, and Carboxylic acids at large.
