At the invitation of the Prime Minister of Thailand, Yingluck Shinawatra, Prime Minister, Muhammad Nawaz Sharif will visit Bangkok from 17-19 November 2013 to participate in “Connect Asia Pacific Summit” being held in Bangkok on 18 November.

The Summit will inter alia be attended by the Presidents of Mongolia and Rwanda and Prime Ministers of New Zealand, Cambodia and Togo.

The visit, which closely follows the visit of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to Pakistan in August this year, is indicative of the closeness of Pakistan – Thailand relations and the desire on part of the leadership of two countries to take these relations to new heights. During their meeting, the two Prime Ministers will review progress on decisions taken during their August 2013 meeting in Islamabad.

Pakistan and Thailand enjoy cordial relationship marked by mutual understanding and close cooperation. These ties date back more than two millennia. Gandhara Civilization provides an immutable bond between the people of the two countries.

The two countries have sought to upgrade their political relations with deeper cooperation in trade, investment, education, science & technology, security, defence, culture, tourism, etc. In essence, bilateral relations are being deepened and broadened at the government-to-government, business-to-business and people-to-people level. The Prime Minister’s visit will further augment the existing close ties between the two friendly countries and their peoples.
