Defence and security cooperation to end the menace of terrorism are of equal importance to both Pakistan and Sri Lanka, says Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi.
He said Pakistan has offered Sri Lanka a credit line of $15 million in this regard.
The foreign minister is currently visiting Sri Lanka with Prime Minister Imran Khan on a two-day official trip. He shared an update on reaching Colombo on his Twitter a day earlier.
The Sri Lankan foreign minister had said that Imran Khan’s visit will help strengthen bilateral ties and cooperation.
Later, Qureshi briefed the press over PM Khan’s visit to Sri Lanka.
Qureshi said Pakistan is standing side by side with Sri Lanka as a partner for the development of human resources, security cooperation, fighting terrorism, development and prosperity.
