Islamabad:German Minister of State of the Federal Foreign Office, Niels Annen, during his two-day visit to Islamabad on January 12 and 13, held political talks with the Parliamentary Secretary, Andleeb Abbas, with the Speaker of the National Assembly, Asad Qaiser and with Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa, says a press release.

In the meetings,. Annen underlined the strategic role of Pakistan: “Bilateral German-Pakistani relations are close and multifaceted. The Pakistani government has substantially stabilised the security situation in the country. Equally important are a stable democratic system and the rule of law, also to attract more German companies. Moreover, Pakistan plays a key role in the regional context, particularly in the Afghan peace process.”

Mr. Annen also met with members of the Senate and the National Assembly, with representatives of think tanks as well as with journalists and human rights activists. He visited the Bari Imam Shrine in Islamabad as well as a Leprosy Clinic and Behbud Industrial Home production in Rawalpindi.
