Davos, 25 May 2022 (TDI): Pakistan’s Foreign Minister, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, met with the Foreign Minister of Romania, Bogdan Aurescu, on the margins of the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Additionally, Minister of State Hina Rabbani Khar was in attendance.

the Foreign Minister of Pakistan Bilawal Zardari said that Pakistan puts a lot of value on its relationships with Romania, both bilaterally and through the European Union.

Trade and investment, development and education, as well as a partnership at multilateral forums were covered by the two Ministers during their meeting.

Both ministers also discussed regional and international topics of mutual concern.
Pakistan and Romania are exploring new avenues for cooperation, and hopefully, with more private sector involvement, the volume of trade between the two countries will increase as well.

The Romanian Minister also shared about the meeting on Twitter and expressed his pleasure in meeting his Pakistani counterpart.

Pakistan-Romania Bilateral Relations

Since diplomatic relations between Romania and Pakistan were established in 1964, the ties between the two countries have grown stronger. Romania’s support for Pakistan’s membership in the UN Security Council in 2011 is an example of this.

In comparison to the political dimension, Pakistan and Romania’s economic ties are less than ideal and need to be improved upon.

However, both countries’ cultural ties are strong. About 200 Pakistani students are currently studying in Romania to become engineers, doctors, IT experts, and businessmen and women.
