ISLAMABAD - President Arif Alvi has said Pakistan will never condone the blatant human rights violations in Indian Occupied Kashmir at the hands of fascist Indian regime.
Talking to Ambassador-designate of Pakistan to Oman K.K. Ahsan Wagan, who called on him here on Friday, the President said that Pakistan will always stand by its Kashmiri brethren.
The President underscored that all High Commissioners/Ambassadors must highlight the true perspective on Kashmir issue and Indian oppression there.
Dr. Alvi said that Pakistan attached great importance to its fraternal relations with Oman and was keen to further enhance these brotherly relations in all spheres.
He, however, said that the current volume of bilateral trade between the two countries does not commensurate to the true potential.

The President highlighted that the presence of Pakistani community in Oman was a living bridge between the two countries.
He said they take pride that the Pakistani community had been making valuable contribution to the development of Oman.
