To celebrate the Defence Day of Pakistan and express solidarity with Kashmiris, a ceremony was held at the Embassy. Besides Officers and Staff, it was attended by a fairly large size of local Pakistanis.

The proceedings commenced with the recitation from Holy Quran. The National Anthems of both Pakistan and Azad Kashmir were played. The message of the Prime Minister on Defence Day of Pakistan was read out before the audience. In her address, the Charge d’Affaires (a.i.) deliberated upon the sacrifices of our valiant armed forces to defend the boundaries of the motherland. While expressing solidarity with the oppressed Kashmiris, she categorically stated that Pakistan shall continue extending its moral, diplomatic and political support to the Kashmiris. In the same vein, she stressed upon the International community to play its role in bringing an end to the humanitarian crisis in Kashmir. She also urged the local diaspora to highlight the Kashmir cause at all possible levels, keeping in view the local sensitivities. In the end, the participants prayed for the oppressed Kashmiris of IOK.
