Pakistan and Tunisia relationship

The Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the Republic of Tunisia share brotherly relations. Both countries have the same state religion as well i.e. Islam. The governments support each other in multiple sectors.

As an example, one of the domains or sectors is the military. Multiple Pakistani Naval missions, time after time, go to Tunisia. Not only that but Tunisia also reciprocates by showing interest in Pakistani-made arms etc.

Today’s meeting is one such example of a high level stronger bond between countries and leadership. Multiple examples exist from history and contemporary times that prove the cordial nature of relations. With the upcoming OIC CFM Session, the bond is further expected to strengthen.
