Pakistanis feel pain of Sri Lankan brethren: Altaf Shakoor

Karachi, April 23, 2019 (PPI-OT): Pasban Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman Altaf Shakoor, expressing heartfelt condolence with terror-affected families of Sri Lanka, said the Pakistanis feel the pain of their Sri Lankan brethren because we have, ourselves, suffered a lot from terrorism.


He, in a statement here Tuesday, said like Sri Lanka Pakistan has also fought evil of terrorism for long decades. He said our economy has suffered badly due to the terrorism and we have given huge sacrifices to contain this menace. He said this is why we truly feel the pain of our Sri Lankan friends in our own hearts. He said the loss of precious lives in Sri Lanka has also devastated us here in Pakistan and we offer our heart-felt condolence to the government and people of Sri Lanka.


Altaf Shakoor said Sri Lanka is a rising regional economic power and our joint enemies are not happy to see the progress and prosperity in both Sri Lanka and Pakistan. This is why conspiracies are being hatched against the both nations. He said that the friendly ties between the two nations are a source of pride for us and we hope these ties would further strengthen with the passage of time. He asked the governments of Pakistan and Sri Lanka to improve people-to-people relations as well as economic and trade ties between the two brotherly countries.
