Mr. Qaiser Nawab, representing the youth of Pakistan, emphasized, “On behalf of the youth of Pakistan, I extend a heartfelt welcome to President Aliyev. Pakistan, vulnerable to climate change impacts such as flooding and heatwaves, looks to Azerbaijan, especially as the host of COP 29, to support our efforts in presenting our case to the global community. Azerbaijan has always stood by Pakistan on Kashmir, and reciprocally, Pakistan has supported Azerbaijan on the Karabakh issue. The youth of Pakistan have always cherished a strong bond of friendship and brotherhood with our Azerbaijani brothers and sisters. This visit will undoubtedly elevate our relations to new heights, and we hope such visits can be planned more frequently to strengthen our ties.”

As a special gesture of honor, President Aliyev’s aircraft was met upon arrival in Pakistan’s airspace by fighter jets of the Pakistani Air Force and escorted to the destination. A guard of honor and a salute of artillery fire were conducted in honor of the President at Pakistan Air Force Base, Nur Khan.

Mr. Qaiser Nawab concluded, “This visit not only strengthens our diplomatic relations but also reaffirms our commitment to working together for peace, prosperity, and development. We look forward to the positive outcomes of President Aliyev’s visit and the continued strengthening of Azerbaijan-Pakistan relations.”
