Politics A- A A+

A Group of selected Pakistani Tv and Print journalists will leave for Azerbaijan on 3 Nov to observe the restoration and re-construction activities in newly liberated territories of Karabakh. The journalists are also supposed to highlight the aggression of Armenia against the civilian targets and destruction of the heritage in occupied territories before leaving after the defeat in the war, Pakistan in the world reports. 

Pakistani media including “Pakistan in the World” international current affairs Website, Magazine, and Daily Azkaar Urdu newspaper from Islamabad exposed Armenian Aggression during the war on daily basis. Editor Tazeen Akhtar was presented certificate of appreciation by former Ambassador Mr. Ali Alizade.

Azerbaijan seeks cooperation of Pakistani companies and departments in re-construction process. Frontier Works Organization officials have already visited the newly liberated areas to see what cooperation can be extended in this regard.

The journalists selected for the visit include Nabiha Malik from PTV, Shifa Yousufzai from Hum TV, 3 journalists from Khyber TV group, Amir Ilyas Rana from Express News TV, Asif Noor from Global News, Umar Zahid Malik from Pakistan Observer, Ansar Mehmood Bhatti from Islamabad Post, Riaz Hussain Malik from National Herald Tribune, Dr Mehmood ul Hassan freelance writer and others.

Here it is worth mentioning that Pakistan supported Azerbaijan during the second Karabakh War. Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited in June 2021 and had meetings with President Ilham Aliyev and Defence Minister Colonel General Hasanov Zakir Asgar in Baku.

Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee Gen Nadeem Raza visited in March 2021 and had discussions with President Ilham Aliyev and military leadership of Azerbaijan.  Director General of FWO, Kamal Azfar visited in Jan 2021 to share what FWO can do in reconstruction activities. Most recently the officials of Pakistani National Logistics Cell visited Baku to oversee the preparations of transportation of first ever trade goods in the history of bilateral relations by road through Iran and Turkey. This was a pilot project that was completed successfully.

President Ilham Aliyev, Defence Minister Zakir and other high level officials including the lady speaker of the Parliament have visited Pakistan. Speaker Asad Qaiser in reciprocation led a parliamentary delegation to Azerbaijan and visited liberated territories.

Azerbaijan is interested in purchasing JF-17 and Super Mushaq military air crafts. Both countries enjoy very close cordial relations in political, parliamentary and defence sectors but the level of trade and economic cooperation is very low inspite of all possible efforts done from both sides. Reason is clear that there is no direct connectivity between the two countries. The officials from both sides stated many times that the direct flights are being started very soon but no development so far in this regard. Both countries are very near to each other but with no direct approach.
