Speaker of the Tanzanian National Assembly Job Ndugai recently pledged to ensure that the relationship between the east African nation and Pakistan remain strong, particularly on parliamentary affairs. Ndugai made the pledge when he met with a delegation of Pakistan national assembly.
The Ambassador of Pakistan in Tanzania, Amir Mohamed Khan, led the delegation, representing the Speaker of Pakistan law-making body, Sardar Ayaz Sadiq. Ndugai hailed the ongoing bilateral relation between the two nations, saying that it “needs to be enriched for the current and future generations.”
He said that Tanzania recognizes the presence of a strong Pakistani community in the country, hence the need to spur relations between the two countries. Khan said his country would also continue honoring the bilateral relations between the two nations, pledging to improve it for the benefit of the people on both sides.
Pakistan and Tanzania enjoy cordial relations since the establishment of the High Commission in 1967 in Dar es Salaam. The two nations have been supporting each other candidatures for various international organizations and share a history of cooperation in diverse fields, especially capacity building and similar views on many international issues.
