In an attempt to ease mounting tensions between the two Asian neighbours following the recent Pampore terror attack and the blocking of India’s membership to the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG), the Pakistan High Commission has released a colourful mission diary for the month of June that highlights the bilateral cultural heritage of the two nations.
The eye-catching 19-page mission diary has placed a picture of Prime Minister Narendra Modi shaking hands with his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif on the cover of the issue, along with External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj meetings with Sartaj Aziz, Prime Minister Sharif’s Foreign Affairs Adviser and Abdul Basit, Pakistan’s High Commissioner to India.
The high commission has, in its mission dairy, shared pictures of various events exhibiting interactions at various levels between the two sides.
The mission diary also shares pictures of the representatives of the Pakistan Day reception, meetings of Pakistani officials with several think tanks and civil society.
There are pictures titled ‘Message of Peace’ in which Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit can be seen participating in the Dussehra celebration at Delhi’s Ramlila ground and also visiting mosques of Kolkata and Bangalore.
Pictures of the Delhi Commonwealth Women’s Association (DCWA) fair in which the Pakistan ladies club of the High Commission participated are also featured.
