President Ramotar accredits new Pakistani High Commissioner
President Donald Ramotar today received Letters of Credence from newly-appointed non-resident High Commissioner, Nasrullah Khan from the Islamic Republic of Pakistan to Guyana.
The High Commissioner said that the relationship between the two countries is based on the strong foundation of mutual respect, both at the level of Government, as well as at the international level.
He noted that in today’s globalised world geographic distance is of little consequence especially since Guyana and Pakistan share a lot of commonalities including the passion and love for cricket.
He also conveyed his country’s gratitude for Guyana’s support for their candidate on the United Nations (UN) Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

The High Commissioner’s friendly sentiments were reciprocated by President Ramotar who said that cooperation between the two countries at the multilateral level, through forums such as the UN, Commonwealth, Non-Aligned Movement, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the Group of 77 among others, has significantly strengthened its relationship.
“Guyana looks forward to greater cooperation on all areas of common endeavours for the betterment of our peoples…both countries have the opportunity to contribute to sustainable development goals that reflect the realities of our countries,” President Ramotar said.
The two countries are hoping to encourage their respective private sectors to enhance trade and commercial relations.
Guyana and Pakistan have enjoyed cordial relations since the establishment of diplomatic relations on November 10, 1967. Further, Pakistan is one of the countries that pledged support for Guyana’s New Global Human Order which seeks to ensure human dignity and a better life for all.
